  1. So privileged to have had such a beautiful mum who showered me with nothing but unconditional love, care and support for all of my 57 years.

    Your legacy will live on as we now try to emulate the love, kindness, patience and humility you displayed to everyone who was fortunate enough to have crossed your path.

    Rest peacefully now mum, with your beautiful Saviour, and I look forward with joy to the day when we will see you again.

    Treasured Mother and Mother in law of Janet and David, and loving Grandma to Ben and Jack.

    Reunited with Dad and Russell.

  2. My dearest mum,

    I love you with all my heart and soul.

    It was an absolute honour to be your daughter. I hope I can display the same level of love, kindness, honesty, selflessness & integrity that you held dear your entire life.

    You will be sadly missed by all who knew and adored you, and especially by your grandchildren, and your 24 (soon to be 25) great grandchildren.

    Reunited with Dad and Russell.

  3. A wonderful woman with a big heart who always had time to be with family, always so welcoming to her loved ones and those they love.

    You were very unassuming and just got on with the job at hand. My boys are very fortunate to have you as their grandmother and to learn from you.

    Loved Mother and Mother in law of Russell (Dec) and Margie, and loving Grandma to Kyle and Tash and Tristan.
    Forever in our hearts

  5. To my beautiful Grandma,
    I just want to let you know you mean the whole world to me. Only a heart as dear as yours would give so much love to me I will miss your arms around me your a special kind of love Grandma.
    If flowers grow in heaven,
    Lord, then pick a bunch for me.
    Then place them in my grandmother’s arms
    and tell her they’re from me.

    Tell her that I love and miss her
    and when she turns to smile,
    place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for awhile.

    May you be at peace with Grandpa finally together as one again I love you both, you mean the world to me.

    Love you forever
