  7. Very sad to hear of Nita’s passing. She was an amazing woman, who assisted me with two house moves, the second of which preceded her stroke. She was so thrilled to see me, when I visited her at the rehab. place. Her love of ballroom dancing was a surprise for me, and I enjoyed her telling me about, and sharing her memories of the dances she and her husband attended. Rest peacefully Nita, you’ve earned it. Kind regards to all the family, Kerry Parkinson

  12. Auntie Nita was a unique person and i loved her. I was her nephew, but i have always felt that she loved me like her own son.
    And it breaks my heart that I’m so far away that I can’t be there to bid her the final good bye.

  13. To Wayne , Sue and the 3 girls as Nita would always say . Renee
    , Hayley and Malarie .We had lots of fun times together, one was up in Albury as Malarie would entertain us with a night show , AS we had so many laughs. THEN Nita and myself off to the PAC to see a live show , only to be sitting outside her house talking and laughing ,WHEN the Police came along asking us what we were doing so late at night . Nita was oh my God what have we done !!,but all was good telling them where we had been,THEY said that they would have come with you 2 ladies as we can see you are both laughing about the night . THEN l would go around and chop her trees back for her
    or any other little thing she wanted . THEN one time sitting there for 2 weeks shredding up all your papers Wayne under the house . These are only a couple of things , but whatever we did we always had fun . Nita will always remain in my heart as she was a good women , tough but honest and loyal and straight to the point . I HAVE lovely memories of her to treasure and l know she is at peace now with NO MORE battles to face . Wayne , Sue and the girls as Nan would say , My Deepest Sympathy goes out to you all at this sad time .l know she wouldn’t want us to cry ,but to just remember her . I’M thinking of you all with lots of love ,knowing Wayne that you and Denis will be spreading her ashes on the Hume Highway as she always told me that is what she wanted .
    Rest Peacefully Nita
    Love Gwen Hall 💗🚚💗
