20 April 2020

We are saddened to hear that Dr Patricia Kailis died peacefully at home early on Friday 17 April 2020.

The Indigo Board, management and staff express our deepest sympathy to Patricia’s family and friends.

Patricia was awarded Life Membership of the Independent Living Centre WA (now Indigo) in 1991 in recognition of her invaluable contribution to the organisation as a Board Member for 12 years (1979 – 1991), five of which she was Deputy Chairperson (1980 – 1985) and five of which she was Chairperson (1986 – 1991).

A truly inspirational woman who supported so many people in the community. She will be remembered fondly by all of us at Indigo.
