The priority of the Devonport Football Club at present is to provide an empathetic, supportive network to all associated with the club, with particular focus on those most affected by the tragic passing of Caitlyn”.
Earlier this month, Caitlyn Loane had shared her journey to TasWeekend magazine during Agfest Tasmania, where the farmer had been overseeing cattle judges. The young lady expressed: “In 2018, I realized that school wasn’t giving me the skills and experience I needed, so I applied to the Sunday Creek Cattle Station, in the Northern Territory, so I could gain experience and learn more”.
Rest in peace, Caitlyn Loane. The young girl will truly be missed, and will always be remembered for her joyful TikToks and the legacy that she left behind for women in agricultural work.
