Biographies

Sybil Irving's friends and colleagues felt that her great contribution to the community, through her concern for the happiness and welfare of others, should not be forgotten. A National Memorial Committee was formed to appeal for subscriptions. This brought response from all states and overseas. A chain of memorials around Australia was planned - one in each capital city. The culmination was the unveiling, by Her Excellency Lady Cowen, of the memorial in Commonwealth Gardens, Canberra on 11 March 1979.
