'Back room' Marnie honoured for her great community work

WELL-KNOWN Cooma identity Marnie Stewart has been recognised for her volunteer community work in the 2012 NSW rural women's honour roll.

Mrs Stewart has been placed on the 'Hidden Treasures Honour Roll' for her tireless efforts to help others in need, living in the region.

The Department of Primary Industries (DPI) 2012 Honour Roll celebrates 126 women from across rural, regional and remote areas of New South Wales who were nominated by members of their community.

Mrs Stewart said it was an honour to be recognised on the roll and to be amongst the women on it.

"But I like to go quietly, I don't like to be out there," Mrs Stewart said.

"I prefer to be behind the scenes."

Born and raised at 'Greenbank' a sheep property near Adaminaby, one of four children, Mrs Stewart owns the Fabric Salon on Vale Street which also doubles as a community hub.

Her volunteering is extensive and includes fundraising, raising awareness of community needs and generally helping with information and assistance.
