In Memoriam

Marie Ryan

Marie Ryan

It is with great sadness that we announce that our dear friend and dedicated presenter Marie Ryan passed away on Monday 12th June 2017.

Marie was one of our most popular presenters, co-hosting "On Stage" with long-time friend Kevin Yates, as well as her own editions of "Morning Magazine" and "Readings & Writings".

Marie fought her battle with cancer with determination and optimism. Her enthusiasm, good humour, and friendship will be very greatly missed.

We would like to pass on our deepest sympathies to Marie's husband John and their family at this very sad time.

Rest in peace, Marie.

We all experience in our lifetime the knowing of a person and then having the pleasure in meeting the special person that leaves you with a heart felt moment where you are left with nothing but appreciation for whom they are in body and heart to others.

From then you appreciate the presence and words they speak and simply the good feel they share around others.

The lady in which l speak of in tender words is Marie Ryan, a lady l have shared successes with as a team member and an individual through our support and commitment with community radio station 96.5 Inner FM in Melbourne.

Marie started presenting radio programs in 2006 and in 2010 l joined the team to just simply be welcomed by Marie Ryan to the station.

We lost Marie on Monday night 12th June 2017 from a long battle of health but Marie kept her ground and now it's her time to rest.

Rest my friend, be proud of your achievements and we all thank you not only for the wonderful person you were but the beautiful thoughts and memories you have left with us.

Rest In Peace, our dear friend. xo
