Listen To Older Voices : Margaret Healy – Part 3

Date:

Share post:

 Welcome to Listen To Older Voices, a program produced  
by Rob Greaves for Uniting Melba and podcast through the 
Toorak Times and Tagg.

Listen To Older Voices presents the stories, views and opinions of our older citizens. It is predominantly in a life & times format, with interviewees reflecting upon their lives from earliest memories. An underlying principle of the program is to promote the concept of positive ageing, reinforcing the principle that older people have & continue to make a valuable contribution to both their local & wider community.

This is the 3rd and final program in the Life & Times of Margaret Healy. In her continuing story we can hear that Margaret has had to face many trials in life and has done so with stoicism that we have come to associate with the “true-blue Aussie”.

Now in the twilight of her years, living alone and in retirement in Yarra Junction outside of Melbourne, she remains active in her local community at the age of 86 years of age.

Margaret – September 2018

But by now this should come as no surprise, because an active community interest is one of the many consistent themes throughout her life and throughout her story!

I have been with the Toorak Times since April 2012. I work as Senior Editor of the Toorak Times, but I also think of myself as senior contributor. I've been in the Australian music scene as a musician since 1964, and have worked in radio and TV and newspapers (when they were paper ), serious experience in audio editing, and a lot of video editing experience. Currently I'm working as a radio program producer for a national interview program as well as my work with the Toorak Times
