Wendy Weston

It is with deep sadness that we inform you of the passing of our Executive Officer, Wendy Weston, unexpectedly at home in Victoria on January 17.

Wendy had been with SPAA since July 2021 and was helping lead the organisation through some exciting changes.

She was not just a co-worker but a good friend, and we’ll miss her more than words can express.

SPAA president Frank D’Emden said Wendy was a champion of not for profits and member-based organisations and threw herself into learning about the Precision Agriculture sector.

“Our thoughts are with Wendy’s family, her husband Paul and adult daughter Gemma, and her dear friends who are also understandably devastated,” he said.

“I was fortunate enough to work closely with Wendy during the past six months. She was an accomplished professional and a remarkable woman who was making a real difference to SPAA.”

We will share with you details of the funeral or memorial service when we learn more.

Frank will be acting Executive Officer for the interim. Please address correspondence to: SPAA President Frank D’Emden at eo@spaa.com.au
