  6. Aunty Mavis, so dearly missed. I will be so lost without our chats and laughter together. So cheeky and stubborn, but you and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
    Your love for you family was immeasurable, you would be the person to keep me informed of what was going on.
    You were tired and ready to go to meet Uncle Darkie and Ros.
    May God bless you as your time on earth was well lived.
    My sorrow is also for your loving family as I know you played a pivotal role in each of their lives.
    To Wayne, Chris, Adam, Kellie Kane and partners, Naomi, Justin,Amelia, Henry Jarrod, Nikki, Oliver and all her beautiful Great grandchildren may you remember her with love and affection.
    To the “Smith family” another member gone but Aunty Mavis you will always be in our hearts.
    Love always Robyn, Lyndelle, Travis and family
