Vale Councillor Ruth Amery

Vale Councillor Ruth Amery Posted: 10-10-2017

The Mayor, Councillors and Council staff who worked by her side are shocked and saddened to hear of the sudden passing of Councillor Ruth Amery on the night of Thursday 5 October 2017.

Councillor Amery was elected in the 2016 Victorian Local Government elections to the Wangaratta Council’s City Ward and followed her passion for arts when she was appointed to the Arts, Culture and Heritage Portfolio. She was a strong advocate for the work undertaken at the Wangaratta Art Gallery, in particular the Contemporary Textile Award, and immersed herself in understanding the difference art and culture can make to people’s lives.

She was a steadfast supporter of the community and a vibrant and friendly person to all. She will be sorely missed. A condolence book has been placed at the front counter of the Wangaratta Government Centre for people to sign to pay their respects.
