Until her illness Mum was active in golf, being a long time member of the Lingan Golf and Country Club. She curled for many years out of the Sydney Curling Club. Mom was also an avid cross country skier for many years. She and Dad travelled widely but their favourite destination was Barbados. She was a long-standing member of St. Mark’s Anglican Church in Coxheath where she was an active member of the ACW and the church guild. She was one of the last surviving members of the Riverview Y’s Menettes.
The family would like to extend its thanks to the staff of the Port Hawkesbury Nursing Home and Mira Bay, Kimberly Hall, Harbourstone Enhanced Care for their exceptional care and compassion. We would also like to thank the staff of Home Instead Sydney, especially Chris, Amanda and Marie for their excellent care of our mother.
