Funeral Notice



  1. So sorry for all of your family at this sad time. Cousin Margaret, who we called Aunty Margaret, well done on an active life, very well lived. When we visited from Perth as kids then as adults we were always welcomed with love, a gorgeous spread of cakes and fun times on the farm. Thanks for many great memories of milking the cows with Uncle Frank and the lads our cousins, rides on the bikes, a great chat, tea and a spread of cakes.
    Kind regards Stephanie Turkich nee Crofts, husband Greg Turkich and our boys Jonathon and Matthew who also remember happy times seeing the cows being milked and the spread of food and chats after.
    Also Jonathan’s wife Gretl and son Xavier. Blessings to you all.
