Flo & Kath McNamara

Flo McNamara lived at Cordeaux until she was in her eighties, working in the orchard, teaching at the school and caring for family members. Kath McNamara, the youngest in the family, was taught by Flo and moved down the mountain as a young woman. They remember the natural beauty of the area and its close community.
