  1. My dear friend Marian I first met you at Main Beach caravan park in 2003. Every year we would spend six weeks there.Over the years we became very good friends we had a special little coffee shop we would go to it had a French atmosphere it was your favourite.I can not imagine you not being there this year.
    The sun will rise and the sun will set but memories of you we will never forget.
    Rest in peace my dear friend.

  2. My dearest friend and sister in law. Marian. I am trying to come to terms with your passing. It is very hard to know that I will never see you again in this life anyway!
    We had some fun times times ❤️ together.
    You and George with John and I.
    I told Gail about the cake burning in Bournemouth, so long ago. I still laugh about that sweetheart. I remember visiting my brother George’s grave with you. You told John and me that you wanted to be buried near George. I hope that this will be the case. I still can’t believe that I can no longer pick up the phone to call you. Maybe they have telephones in heaven?
    I will love you my lovely, until we meet again. xoxo

  4. Nan from an early age never treated me any differently from her other grandchildren,being that I am her step grandson,she told me countless times that I don’t think of you any differently.

    And how well behaved and respectful our children have grown-up to be,this always made me smile and meant so much to me

  5. My mother could leap tall buildings in a single bound, and move mountains – just give her a shovel.
    She could grow anything, Cooked Thai,
    Conquered iPhone technology (almost ) – so lucky she lived close to Robert –
    and took thousands of photos with her laptop.
    She always needed a dream, and chased, caught and held them all her life.
    There was never enough time.
    Her energy and vivacity knew no bounds.
    She sailed away from me for the last time early on Sunday morning,
    full of peace and acceptance that her race was run.
    I will miss you forever mum.

  7. Nan, I’ll always cherish the special times we had together. You took me to horse riding lessons and in my late teen years we went to dance classes together at Take 5.
    When I was going to meet a stranger about a room to rent you came with me and was rest assured that they were good people. When I think of you there’s only happy memories.
    Thankyou for being my Nan. I love you and miss you very much.

  8. I remember Marion as a lively and lovely participant, and invaluable pianist, at Gail and Phil’s annual Christmas carol nights. Always cheery, she would happily chat to the gathered friends, no matter what age or stage. She had an engaging personality and would remember topics covered from year to year. She always looked stylish and youthful – I remember from one year, her bold blue nail polish and matching outfit, including smart blue sandals. It was also lovely to see the pictures of Gail and Phil catching up with Marion and Charles on their Queensland camping trips, indefatigable travellers, all of them! Memories to treasure.

    • We had a special bond Mum, Edie and I think of the memories of all the fun times we had at Bundalong, Christmas days, Easter, Mothers day and birthdays, not to mention all the dinners we shared. We are going to miss you terribly. Love you Mum, rest in peace.

  10. While my encounters with Marian were limited, I got a sense of her resilience and strength. I am glad that she was able to live a long and active life until near the end and that you were able to spend some quality time with her in the last few months, Gail. It is hard to lose a mum at any time and my thoughts are with you and your family Gail. Know that I am here if you need some support in this difficult time. With love, Sharon

  11. Sincere condolences to Rob, Edie and family.
    We have shared so many happy fun filled times with your wonderful bubbly cheeky mum over nearly 30 years. Memories are ours to keep
    Rest now Marian
