    I am really sad to hear of the passing of Marion. She was the faithful secretary to Peter Warrilow in Aussat.

    Having been in Peter’s engineering team throughout the build of the satellite ground station infrastructure I had regular interaction with Marion. She was such a beautiful person. I have never forgotten her and her loyalty to Peter and our team.
    RIP Marion.
    Regards Bob Murray

    Very sad.

    I do remember Marion well.

    She was a no nonsense efficient Secretary in those days with a typewriter … not these stupid computer things.
