OWEN, Annie (née Kuhne)

Local nurse, midwife and much loved community member Annie Owen (maiden name Annie Kuhne) passed away on Friday, December 27, 2019. She was 68. Annie was the daughter of local dairy farmers Norman and Marjorie Kuhne and sister to Douglas, Keith and Allan Kuhne. She is survived by her husband Noel, children Matthew and Renee, and grandchildren Conan and Hugo. Annie spent her life caring for others and teaching nurses and midwives at Leongatha Hospital.
