    District farewells stalwart by Merryl Miller
    Mervyn Burgess (1919-2001)
    Mervyn Alfred Burgess, who died on 22 July aged 81, was a stalwart of the Pinelands and Crows Nest communities. Born in Toowoomba on 29 December 1919, Mervyn was the eldest of five children born to Alfred and Margaret. Raised in Crows Nest, Mervyn attended St Matthew's Convent before finishing his schooling at Pinelands School, where his family had bought a farm. After several years working on the family farm, Mervyn was called up to serve in the Army in 1941. Mervyn was a member of the 25th Infantry Battalion, and saw some of the war's bloodiest action in Milne Bay, New Guinea. Like many servicemen who served in the Pacific, Mervyn suffered several bouts of malaria, but was not discharged from duty until October 1944. He then headed home to resume farming life.
    In 1946 Mervyn married Nancy Patch of Emu Creek, and the couple had 10 children: Mervyn often attributed his large family to the arrival of the cream carrier at 4am each morning -- a dangerous time for a man to be woken up, he claimed. Horseshoe, a 97ha (240 acre) property at Pinelands, became home for the ever-increasing Burgess clan in 1950. Mervyn was kept busy with dairy farming, producing poultry, droving cattle, making hay, and growing corn, lucerne, and oat crops. Both Nancy and Mervyn also enjoyed their orchard and vegetable garden, and the local show was always the lucky recipient of their home-grown produce. Another property, Wolski's, near the Pinelands farm was purchased in 1959, and Mervyn expanded his holding further with the acquisition of Coalbank in 1980, and Cooby in 1990. Meanwhile, the house at Horseshoe continued by necessity to grow, and Mervyn appreciated the help of neighbours during these busy years. Mervyn maintained a strong community involvement in the Crows Nest district throughout his life. For 28 years he was a member of the Crows Nest Hospital Board, as well as serving on numerous dairy organisations, hall committees, the RSL, and the Pinelands Fire Brigade. If Mervyn Burgess had one wish, it was to build a successful and happy life for himself and his family -- a goal he certainly achieved. He is survived by his wife of 55 years, his children, 30 grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren.
