Peace at Last



With overwhelming sadness I saw you suffer, I watched you fade away,

my heart was slowly breaking as you fought so hard to stay.

It doesn’t seem fair what you went through,

reunited with Dad and at peace now.

However your gentle nature and heart of gold,

are the memories I will hold.



Family and friends are invited to attend the funeral service for Violet,

to be held in the Maldon Neighbourhood Centre, Cnr Church and Edwards Street, Maldon

on Wednesday 17th August at 2.00pm.


A private cremation will follow this service.

    I will remember Violet for her warmth and regard, for making our stays with her special by adding a loving touch, for welcoming us into her home and making me feel a part of the family through my friendship with her daughter Jan.
    Our fond memories of her will always remain in our hearts and minds.

    Her name was Violet, but she will always be my Aunty Babs. I will remember her as a graceful, gentle, loving lady but with an underlying strength and determination. Babs, Bob and Jan were our only relatives from England that came to Australia like my mum and dad, so there was always reminiscing of younger days ,war times and life. They were our family. Babs was the only one who knew me when l was just a bump as she put it, and even though visits were probably not as frequent as they should have been, that relationship has lasted all my life. I know that my mum and dad valued their friendship and enjoyed meeting for cups of tea and cake. Those days are now gone but will always remain fond memories for us that are here now. I’m sorry l can’t be there on the day but she will always remain lovingly in my heart. Condolences from our family.

    My dearest sister Babs, what a privilege to have had you as my sister and despite the many miles between us I always, always felt our closeness. You were my role model in all things beautiful, true and kind. I will hold dear the many, many lovely telephone calls and I have treasured and very happy memories of our wonderful visits to Australia, never to be forgotten. Rest in peace and all my love.

    Babs you were an amazing hospitable Aunt whose gentle voice I can always bring to mind.
    From my stay with you and Bob I remember a gifted homemaker, great kindness and your good humour.
    Down the years we have received your wonderful airmail letters and cards complete with beautiful handwriting and filled with news.
    Babs you are dearly remembered, sending love at this sad time to Jan, Edward family and friends.
