My dear precious friend Anne,
you are free as a bird now, in God’s loving care.
I came to Mildura this week, planning to surprise you. Couldn’t wait to catch up, reminisce, analyse, ponder, and just enjoy being with my mate. Sadly, it wasn’t meant to be.
Thank you for all the laughs, the crazy, fun times and for simply being you! Our summers were never ever dull!
Growing up with you was such a joy. We could laugh for hours and hours, over absolutely nothing! We could solve all the problems of the world in one afternoon too lol!
When your life became challenging, I never heard you complain or feel sorry for yourself….instead you always saw the beauty and joy in everything. You were SUCH an inspiration to all of us, and we will never forget your courage and inner strength. A true, shining light.
Matey, it was such an honour and privilege to have you as my friend.
I will never forget you.
All my love,
Anna (Congiusta)February 6, 2021
Sincere condolences to Vaso, Maria & George, my love goes out to you all.February 7, 2021
Despite Anne’s health difficulties in life, she always spread love and joy to all she came into contact with. She had a sincere caring heart and really cared for people. Her welcoming big smile and encouraging words will be missed. A precious soul at rest. No more pain or suffering, until that great day when we will see her again. Until then, we carry her in our hearts and know we are blessed by her legacy.

She was a shining light despite all her suffering, Anne’s strength came from within and she was always interested, kind and caring of others. A true gift to our earth and now is a white angel at peace.
Deepest condolences to all her loving family and friends.

My heart felt love goes out to Valerie, Maria, George and family. I am so sorry for your loss…
Dear beautiful Anne (Anka, Snip) Thank you for blessing my life with your love, your laughter and so many memories! From Sacred Heart College where I met you when I was 15 to Torquay and then to Byron are adventures took place. Traveling the light and loving life through our ups and downs. Your were a breath of fresh air, speaking your truth, a fellow seeker, always sincere unless you were making a joke! Then we would laugh and all would be well. Positive but real my favourite kind of person! Your were so supportive and caring, I’ll never forget when you drove me to the airport to be with my beloved Caspar. Of course I’ll drive you Anthea! I can still hear you say. A true friend. Through all you’ve been through you remained positive, strong and with a C’est la Vie attitude. I love you Anne and will miss you. Always in my heart and thoughts, Anthea xoFebruary 11, 2021
My dearest soul sister and beloved friend – it is a relief to know that your spirit has now been released from the challenges and pain of your physical body.February 11, 2021
I will miss your presence in my life and our amazing deep and philosophical conversations. I will miss your laughter and your smile. I treasure all the wonderful memories I have of times shared with you and adventures had together and I know that we will always be connected through our love for each other and because your soul never dies and your spirit will be around all of us who loved you forever.
You were such a courageous, real, determined, strong, creative, spiritual, enquiring, quirky, funny and totally unique person. Always eager to learn and grow and create and try new things. I am truly blessed and lucky to have known you for 20 years and to be able to say that you were one of my best friends ever in the whole wide world.
Fly free now – you are on the next grand adventure.
Our beloved ‘Snip’February 11, 2021
Sending our love to all those touched by Anne’s big heart and wisdom. She always had time for us to talk and laugh. The beautiful times we shared together living on the south coast of Victoria and camping out in the Bush (where we all took turns to ‘Snip’ all your hair off). One of our mutual friends has also passed away this week. Phil and Snip will no doubt be planning something fun and creative together.
Love you lots Snippy, you will alway live on in our hearts.
