Mr O'DOWD (Flynn) (13:58): Dawn Mackenzie was 70 when she died last Monday, 20 October 2014. She was a warm and generous person, well respected and an icon of the bush. Born on a property near Baralaba, she spent her teenage years in Rockhampton. She was involved with the Red Cross and the Cattlemen's Union, and with the Queensland Country Women's Association as a member of the Dingo branch for 50 years and as president for several years. She managed five cattle properties with her husband, Peter; and Dawn and Peter's children, Greg, Cherie and Lisa, all followed in their footsteps on the land and are still there.

Dawn was farewelled at a service at Rockhampton's St Joseph's Cathedral on Monday, while another service was held in Dingo on the same day. I extend my sympathies to her husband, Peter; to her children, Greg, Cherie and Lisa; and to their families and friends. Rest in peace.

The SPEAKER: It being 2 pm, and in accordance with standing order 43, the time for members' statements has concluded.
