Athletics Victoria were saddened to hear of the passing of Joyce Green (nee Hanger) last Sunday, 20th May at the age of 90.
Joyce was an active member of Collingwood Harriers Athletic Club during her early athletic days, returning years later to the sport she loved as a masters’ athlete, still with Collingwood Harriers.
Coached by the legendary Henri Schubert, Joyce was a regular at National Championships between 1949 to 1956 over the 440 and 880-yard distances.
Joyce was also a valued member of Preston Athletic Club where she was awarded life membership for her service as an official for more than 25 years.
A loyal athletics fan to the end, Joyce found great pleasure in supporting the Australian athletes at the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast.
Joyce will be remembered at a service to be held Monday, 28th May 2018 at Ern Jensens Funerals, Preston at 11:15am. All are welcome.
