Two Hon­ourable Gran­nies

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - Community News -

Ella Hor­ton of Glenorie has some high fam­ily achieve­ment to live up to, with both her grand­moth­ers be­ing recog­nised in this year’s Aus­tralia Day Hon­our’s list.

Dr Diana O’Hal­lo­ran from Glenorie was made an Of­fi­cer in the Gen­eral Di­vi­sion (AO) for her dis­tin­guished ser­vice to medicine in gen­eral prac­tice and Judy Hor­ton from Mid­dle Du­ral was awarded a medal (OAM) for the pro­mo­tion of hor­ti­cul­ture and gar­den­ing. Diana and Judy cel­e­brated re­cently by en­joy­ing lunch to­gether at the Sasan­qua Café on Cat­tai Ridge Road.

Ella, who grad­u­ated last year from Gal­ston High School, is pos­si­bly the only young per­son in Aus­tralia who has had both her grand­moth­ers si­mul­ta­ne­ously hon­oured, but in two en­tirely dif­fer­ent fields.

Diana and Judy will be of­fi­cially pre­sented with their awards at Gov­ern­ment House Syd­ney in May.
