It was with sadness that Coffs Harbour City Council has learnt of the passing of former Councillor Kerry Hines.
“On behalf of Coffs Harbour City Council and the community I’d like to extend our sympathies to her husband Chris and family,” said Coffs Harbour Mayor, Councillor Denise Knight.
“On a more personal note, I have never known anyone with a bigger personality and devotion to her business, family and husband.
“The Coffs Harbour area will miss her vibrancy and passion, as will I and all the people she came into contact with.
“She most certainly was Unreal in the true sense of the word. We will all miss her.”
Kerry Hines was a Councillor from 2008 until 2012 during which time she proved herself to be an able champion for local business and the local economy.
