Aunty Marie you were such a beautiful person, so welcoming, friendly and happy. You had a special way of making everyone feel happy when talking to you. You always took the time to chat to me at family gatherings and truly cared about others. It was clear that you loved all your family dearly. I will remember you with great fondness and treasure the special memories I have of you, especially at all the family birthday parties. Mum & Dad also respected and dearly loved you and your family. All my love Uncle Max, Julie, Karen, Brad, Max and families. I know what a difficult time this is for you all. Aunty Marie you will always be in my heart and dearly missed by all who knew you. Lots of Love, Colleen XXXOOO
