St Arnaud local Ella Ebery could be immortalised in a piece of silo art.
The 103-year-old passed away in May and was the editor of the North Central News for 34 years until she retired aged 97.
Member for Western Victoria Jaala Pulford paid tribute to Ms Ebery in parliament and has flagged the idea of a permanent memorial in the St Arnaud district.
Ms Pulford said the local community loved Ella Ebery and has flagged a mural on one of St Arnaud's silos to remember her legacy.
"Ella was one of the most significant rural women Victoria has ever seen and I think it would be great to find a way of celebrating her life and remember her enduring legacy," Ms Pulford said.
"Ella was a true pioneer, an award winning newspaper editor, mayor of St Arnaud and a voice for her local community. She is the epitome of inspiring and I think she needs to be remembered in a big way.
"I really like the idea of having one of the St Arnaud silos painted with Ella's image where she will be remembered by current and future generations."
Northern Grampians Shire Council Kara Kara ward councillor Tony Driscoll said Ms Ebery needed to be memorialised in some way.
"Whether it is part of some silo art or in the Queen Mary Gardens, which she was very stoic and passionate about, certainly the community will have a think about (creating) something fitting to remember her contributions," Mr Driscoll said.
"She was certainly a trailblazer in a lot of areas as mayor the town, editor of the paper and a champion of many causes.
"It is certainly very generous of Jaala to initiate the conversation. We appreciate her efforts in wanting to memorialise Ella and will work with her for an outcome that is appeasing to the family and the community in general."
Mr Driscoll said Ms Ebery showed age was never a barrier to achievement.
"She was a mother as well (but) when you consider her career, she advanced that in her 60s in terms of the newspaper and local government," he said.
"Ella was a major driver of the community's wants, needs and aspirations. She was a champion to many."
Ms Pulford is calling for community feedback one ways to honour Ms Ebery's legacy.
"The Silo Arts Trail has become a very popular attraction for tourists in Western Victoria and I think the St Arnaud silos would be a perfect canvas to remember Ella's standing and achievements," she said.
