Passed away on September 1st in Geelong.
Loving and much-loved wife and best friend of Gerard and mother and mother–in –law of Kerry and Brian, Maree and Sean, Cindy and Kent, Rosie and Paul, Naomi and Travis. Very proud Nana of Zach and Izzy, Elly and Jack, Olivia and Ava.

Dear Mum, every day I become a bit more like my mother….and I couldn’t be any prouder. Love you, Kerr and Brian.

Loving, beautiful, caring Mum and Nana. We will always cherish the memories, fun times, laughs and have you in our hearts forever and we know that you are with us. Love Maree, Sean, Olivia and Ava.

We hope we can see the world as you did Nana. We promise to look after Pa and keep emptying his biscuit jar. Love you Nana – Cindy and Kent, Elly and Jack.

Nana, always so welcoming ready with a cuppa, some slice and good advice. Love Rosie and Paul, Zach and Izzy.

Mum, you encouraged me to be my own man. No more zucchini slice and no more “Bev’s gifts” on the doorstep. Though our loving memories will remain. “Love from Naomi” & Trav.
