I rise to pay tribute to the late Beryl Winter, who died last Thursday at the age of 94. Beryl was a life member of the Australian Labor Party; a former drama teacher; employee of Film Australia, the ABC and Sydney Festival; volunteer with 2RPH radio for the blind; member of Marrickville Heritage Society; and the wife of the former member of the ACTU executive and Conciliation and Arbitration Commissioner, Terry Winter, who was also a life member of the ALP before his passing.

Beryl brought light and love into the lives of many people in my local community. I celebrate her life, mourn her passing and pay tribute to her today. I wish her family and friends all the best for her send-off, which will be a celebration conducted this coming Thursday.
