  9. Dottie,

    I’ve been lucky enough to know you my whole life, from helping you deliver coffee, tea and biscuits at the Mildura Shire Office in Irymple when I was a little kid to our train & bus trips down to Melbourne to visit my nan, sleepovers, your strong green cordial, Christmas Eve church outings and who could forget your Christmas Day visits and the antics that came with it and not to mention everything else in between!

    You were such an amazing lady and it’s a privilege to have known you.

    My sincere condolences to Carmel, Debbie, Jenny, Ray, Cobby, Tiddles, Wally and your families.

    Rest In Peace Dottie xx
