Norma Gleeson was passionate about Aboriginal rights and worked tirelessly for the Koorie community through many roles over her career including Aboriginal Affairs from 1976 to 1996.
Norma had a particularly strong connection with the Koorie Heritage Trust, actively supporting the development of the Koorie Heritage Trust in the 1980s and continuing to be a loyal member of the Trust for many years. When Norma passed away in February 2011, her sister Judith and niece Sala provided funds to establish the Norma Gleeson Bequest.
