    Dearest Mary,
    Thank you for the light you always brought in to my life, your beautiful spirit with such a sense of fun and humour always brightened up my days.
    Our singing sessions will never be the same, we were so lucky to have you as what we used to call “Our surrogate Nana” to look after my Lucy and Lily when they were young, and absolutely privileged to be able look after you in your final years.
    Bless you darling Mary you will always be remembered, always in our hearts, we loved you very much.

    In loving Memory of Dear Mary.
    You were such an important figure for an aspiring young actor, as I was growing up in Castlemaine.
    Such a pleasure to have worked with you on numerous local productions, firstly “Bye, Bye Birdie” and lastly “The Sentmental Bloke”.
    You were one of the BEST STAGE MANAGERS I have ever worked with and I owe you much gratitude for teaching me many of the fundamentals of stage craft.
    You will always be remembered with great affection.
    My sincerest condolences to all the family.
    With Love – Michael Treloar
