I think of the joy you gave to others and the love that you shared too.

The happiness surrounding you and thoughtful things you would do.

I think about the outings we had.

The times we just sat chatting while having breakfast or afternoon tea.

I think of advice you gave and knowledge you would share.

The warmth that always filled a room whenever you were there.

I think of all the memories and happy times together.

The strength and kindness you brought into my life will stay with me forever.

We will miss you.

Love from your granddaughter Jo and Jacob.


Our dear Nana,

As I sit here and look at your photo, it’s hard to understand why our beautiful Nana is no longer here.

I cannot choose one memory, our hearts are full of them.

You are so special to us and will always be in our hearts.

Your treasures, Jedda and Laticia.



Always so loving, thoughtful and kind.

What beautiful memories you leave behind.

Today, tomorrow, our whole lives through, we will always remember you.

Forever in our hearts.

  • Josh, Belle, Ben and Sophie.


A wonderful person who placed the needs and care of others before yourself.

A true lover of family, friends and nature.

Your work etiquette and resilience to health adversities so ever inspiring.

Now in peaceful rest.

Your forever appreciative and loving son, Chris and Sue.



Being at the farm will never feel the same, as you were a huge part of our fond memories of growing up.

Your kind and caring nature is so inspiring and your generosity was always appreciated.

We’ll truly miss you.

  • Matt and Amy.
