  1. Yesterday we farewelled Maree.
    Maree and I have been friends since I was 15.And that wasn’t yesterday.

    Maree had many loves in her life
    She loved her 5 beautiful children,their partners,husbands,her beloved grandchildren,and great grandchild. Marie her mum,her brothers,sisters,and their families.And extended family uncles,aunt’s cousins.Maree had room in her heart for everyone dear to her.

    Roland has been part of Maree’s
    life for many years, and so have Rol’s boys who Maree thought of as family.Rol and Maree had a wonderful life together many trips away,family gatherings and support for each other
    thru the illnesses that have come in these later years.

    Maree loved her work as a nurse,
    She was one of the best.Kind and knowledgeable.If I ever had a loved one in hospital and Maree was on duty I was very happy.

    Maree loved her friends.Her many
    friends.She always made time for catch ups,a phone call or text.
    Back in the early days when we were in the surf club Maree and John looked after us younger ones.we were always welcome at their home for a meal or just a chat.The Surf club,rowing club and Whale boats were a big part of Maree and Stoneys life.Such fond memories.

    Maree loved John’s family especially the nieces and nephews.

    As much as Maree was straight she had a wicked sense of humour.She was great company and a lot of fun.

    Maree endured many ups and downs. Hardly ever did she complain.

    To me Maree you were a confidante,nurse on call,recipe book,but most of all my dear friend.
    Time for you to rest Maree.

    You will be dearly missed and never forgotten ❤️

  10. Maree, my heart broke when I learned of your passing. Many fond memories of you, including the times you visited mum and dad with Auntie Marie. Also what stands out the most was the day before my mum passed. You came and sat with me and gave me so much love, support and comfort. I will never forget that day, as without you being there I would not have been able to get through that day.
    Deepest condolences to Auntie Marie and all Maree’s beautiful family.
