  1. A wonderful Aunty who will be sadly missed. Her love for her family and friends was remarkable.
    The matriarch of the “Smith family”, what will we do without you organising our family gatherings and parties.
    It was a joy for me to call you my Aunty. My thoughts are with Barry, Peter, Gavin and family. Rest In Peace now Aunty Jean , you will be sadly missed.

  4. Jeannie, You were such a remarkable gardener and a great friend. I will always treasure all the skills you shared with me … cake decorating, sewing and gardening. I almost became a member of the Sell family and the sadness I feel for all of them at this time is deep. I’m just going to focus on the happy and memorable experiences we all shared together.

  7. Jean was my second mum. A great supporter of all my ventures! She and I shared sewing, gardening and cake making and decorating activities and we shared love of the Friday night gardening show on t.v. We shared a takeaway meal every Friday night … our favourite being Chinese and occasionally Fish and chips. Jean and Eric both welcomed me into their lives and i gradually got to love the lot of them. I feel so sad to lose this very positive influence in my life, and I want to acknowledge the deep loss you as her family must feel. Much love to you all, Lyn Francis

  11. Sell Phyllis Jean
    A wonderful sister, sister in law and Auntie to her brother Don’s Family.
    Your cheerful and happy go lucky nature was treasured by everyone. Always a smile on your face and a kind word for all. We had many happy memories with the Sell family, usually involving a meal followed by a large bowl of ice cream thanks to Eric and Bulla. What a wonderful man Eric was a great brother in law and Uncle. Traveling was an adventure which has been talked about over the years, great fun all together.
    Condolences to Barry and Doris, Gavin and Peter you couldn’t have had a better mum.
    A wonderful lady who will be remembered with much love and a happy memory to share.
    Don Smith and family
