John Mudge

shares his memories with Denise McCarthy
John Mudge’s history reveals him as a man of strong character whose important life choices and decisions have been based on sound values and a consistent belief in listening to the other side’s story.

Although John spent almost all of his life in South Australia and New South Wales, he was never actually very far from Mildura and did spend some months here when he was a young man. After 58 years in Broken Hill John and his wife Margaret moved to Mildura in 2008 and settled into Unit 4, Princes Court Village, where John now lives alone. In regular Thursday afternoon Q & A sessions in the comfort of his living room, John shared many aspects of his life’s journey. In John’s words: My parents John and Sylvia Mudge met in a camp set up for government workers at Paringa in South Australia, where Sylvia lived with her parents and John was able to doss down in single men’s quarters when he was in town. I have the original Licence for Marriage which permitted them to marry in the Congregational Church at Barmera, S.A. on May 20, 1926.
