  3. Aunty Mary, my childhood memories of summer trips with my family to Pt Fairy are some of the best growing up, your sharp wit, sense of humour, big hugs and amazing ability to pick up any of us kids telling a fib was legendary. I remember long summer afternoons playing cricket in the paddock next door until you called us all in for dinner.
    You will be missed. Xx
    Paul, Irene, Madi & Kris

  4. Thank you Mary for welcoming me into your family. You were a patient and gentle Nanna to our children and a kind and generous mother-in-law. Smart as a whip and funny to boot. I will miss your loving presence in our life. Yvonne

  8. Auntie Mary, my memories are so rich and wonderful, I cried for an hour or more when I heard as I recalled them all. I will never forget you and the love you gave to all around you. Mum is lost without her older sister. RIP Wonderful lady.

  9. Sister, Mother, Wife. It’s easy to forget who we were and the impact we’ve had on those we love. Mary was my mother. A wife to Larry, a sister to Anne. She was smart, funny and beautiful right up until the end. Radiant in pink and purple. She taught me to be kind, she held me when I was in pain and she scolded me when I deserved it. My heart breaks.
