Violet Vines Marshman (1917-2014) and the VV Marshman Charitable Trust
Born in the rural village of Branxholme in western Victoria and trained as a nurse, Mrs Violet Vines Marshman devoted much of her life to improving the health and wellbeing of people living in regional and rural Australia.
Ten years before her death in 2014, Violet established the VV Marshman Charitable Trust, with her sons – Ian, Neil and Ken – as three of its Trustees. The $3 million investment in establishing the Violet Vines Marshman Rural Health Initiative at La Trobe will enable the expansion of La Trobe’s cutting-edge partnership work with communities to address the major challenges and issues that impact on rural health and wellbeing.
