Much loved friend to Aileen, Mary, Justina, Lucile and many others.

In light of the current level of risk in regard to COVID 19 and statutory requirements, with considerable sadness, the family have decided to hold a simple graveside service and interment  at Coral Ridge Memorial Gardens officiated by the Reverend at St. Leonard’s Church, for immediate family members only on Tuesday, 6th April, 2021. At a later date, in better circumstances, we will hold a memorial service where we can properly celebrate the life of a truly remarkable woman, loved by so many.
