Loving, caring, compassionate and a tireless worker

CANTERBURY Bankstown Council has paid tribute to the late Eunice Rogan by acknowledging the support and tireless work she did on behalf of our City.

Mrs Rogan will be remembered by many in the community as a loving, caring and compassionate woman who was the ‘rock’ that supported the late State MP for East Hills, Pat Rogan OAM. A position he held from 1973-1999. Aged 86, she passed peacefully at her nursing home after a period of being unwell.
Eunice lived in Padstow most of her life and was at her husband’s side during many arduous campaigns and parliamentary sessions.
Mr Rogan served as an MP for 25 years during which time he was the driving force behind the duplication of the East Hills railway line, the construction of the Padstow TAFE, and the bridge at Menai, to name just a few of his achievements.
He was also the Chairman of a Select Committee looking at prostitution, President of the Revesby Workers Club and boss of Clubs NSW.
It is unquestionable, Eunice’s unwavering support and occasional “quiet word” in her husband’s ear, was instrumental in our community being in a better place.
She will be sadly missed by her daughters, Vicki and Corinne, and grand-children, and all those whose lives she touched.
She was laid to rest at Woronora Lawn Cemetery today.
