Vale Aunty Eva Richardson

It is with sadness that we share the passing of Aunty Eva, our much-loved Claremont College Aboriginal Elder.

Aunty Eva has been part of our college community for the past 20 plus years. Until recent years she was a familiar and constant face on campus, connecting students and staff together with her loving nature and staunch advocacy of our students. Aunty Eva was not only a great support to Aboriginal students, but all college students, and believed that every student had the right to learn and be part of the college, no matter their background. Aunty Eva made all people she talked to feel special and we are all the better for having known her. She had a unique way of looking at the world and we are grateful that we got to share that with her.

Claremont College will miss Aunty Eva greatly. We extend our sincere condolences to Len and all of Aunty Eva’s family.
