  1. This recent photo of Faye shows me she was young at heart, full of enthusiasm and zest for life.
    This matches our Mum Dawn and perhaps that is why they have been close friends from childhood, growing up on the banks of the Curdievale river, sharing their lives with constant letters when separated by distance and the occasional catch ups over the years. So we have grown up knowing Faye vicariously, understanding how much those mail days were so precious to our Mum. In recent years Faye kindly sent all those written memories to us to read to Mum as she whiles away her days in full care here in WA.
    Blessings to the family and friends from Dawn and the Le Couteur descendants, especially those unable to attend today.

    Always held dear in our hearts as ‘the wattle lady’ rest in peace xx
