Vale: SGT. Annette Tolhurst (Née: Hinton)

It is with deep regret and incredible sadness, that I announce the passing of Annette Tolhurst (Née: Hinton) ????

Annette passed away peacefully, last Thursday evening, after a battle with cancer.

I worked with Annette extensively at North Sydney Police Station, many years ago.
She was an incredibly proficient operator and a wonderful woman.
Annette was a no-nonsense type of person, who got the job done, with a minimum of fuss. She easily won the admiration and respect of all of her work colleagues and dearest friends.

I believe that Annette’s final posting was at the Police Assistance Line (Lithgow).

Rest In Peace, sweet lady.
You were an incredibly beautiful person.

If funeral details do become available, I will announce further updates.
