I was so sad to see this lovely lady had passed. She was the sweetest person, she had a big heart, and a great laugh.
My daughter was fortunate enough to be in her girl guide group when she was younger. So sorry for your loss Kim and family.

A dear sweet lady who always had a smile!
Always a treat to have her in the kitchen at Guiding events. I cherish the recipe collection from a 1992 Cheam Area Guider training weekend at Tsoona. Also working with her on the We Care quilts at the guild was wonderful.
My thoughts are with you all.

From: Cindy Vodermayer
Relation: She was a customer at a local paint store that I used to help on occasion.

I remember your mom, always having a bright smile, she was a very nice lady.
