By | Other News

Coolum Theatre Players’ friends of Edna Tiley, wish to pay their respects following her passing in Adelaide on 24th June aged 86.

Edna was a founding member of CTP who worked tirelessly behind the scenes, directed and appeared on stage in those formative years.

Her husband Pat also served as President during 1990-91. She struggled with MS in her later years, now at peace. Our sincere condolences to her family.

Speaking at the General meeting, which unanimously supported his proposal to award her life membership, David said Julia “worked tirelessly, networked, cajoled & encouraged the local community to support CTP both as past president & our outgoing publicity officer.

[Her] efforts have made CTP the gold standard of publicity for Sunshine Coast Theatres and I will personally always be grateful for you introducing me to the Coolum Theatre Players family.

You’ve been an invaluable part of the team Julia; we thank you for everything you have done and we look forward to seeing you, working with you and making many more memories together.”
