    My beautiful friend June.
    I will always remember the first time I’ve met you and that was 17 years ago.
    You sit a distance from and when I looked over to you, you smile at me and I taught what a beautiful woman you are.
    And indeed you was beautiful inside and out
    We both love cooking and you taught me a few tips of how you do your cooking.
    June was a happy woman, thank you June I will always remember you

    My beautiful Aunty June, you have left a void in my heart that will never be filled. There are so many memories of you over my life that I will cherish forever, one being our little adventure to Darwin in 2022. Your strength & determination has been amazing in recent times with you having to endure some very tough health challenges, you don’t have to fight anymore because you’ve now been released from all of your pain & suffering. I miss you so much already Aunty but I take comfort in knowing you are reunited with your husband & loved ones. Respectfully offering my deepest sympathies to my cousins Wayne, Sean, Deon, Anita & families. I love you now & always Aunty June, your nephew Daniel.

  8. My beautiful sister June we are going to miss you so much. You were our story teller and you taught us all so much and you touched the hearts of young and old. We all have beautiful memories to keep forever. Also sending our love and condolences to Wayne, Sean, Deon, Anita and their families. Love you forever From Lynette and Johnboy

  9. Vicki Smyth (née Mazza) says:

    Condolences the Anita and the boys on the sad loss of your wonderful mum. June and my mother Dawn always stopped for a chat whenever they saw each other. It didn’t matter if they were running late for an appointment they still stopped for ‘that’ chat.
    Your dad has been waiting along time for the love of his life and now at long last they have reunited.
    My family has some lovely memories of your mum and she will be missed so much
    My love goes to you all

    Our beloved friend and sister in the Lord has finished the (marathon) race and is home where she is now seeing all her hopes realised. Peace and Joy forever more reconnecting with family and friends who have passed through the Door to Eternal Life knowing that ALL things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose. ❤️🙏🌹June loved God and lived as demonstration of His love (impartial without prejudice) to all.

    Our heartfelt and sincere condolences to all her family
    and especially to Anita and Jen for your tireless love and care June so much appreciated.

    We are missing her stories and cooking and her faith (the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen for all her beloved family) and will honour her and continue to pray for what she asked.

    Until we meet again!

    To Anita and the family, our heartfelt sympathy goes to you all.
    Your Mum, Aunty and Nana was an amazing lady. Always up for a chat and a laugh at church..her Jonny cakes were the best and we always looked for June’s dish at church fellowship nights. She has left a legacy of generosity, unconditional love and acceptance of everyone.
    Greg and I really enjoyed connecting with her again during our time in Geraldton. God bless you all.

    You made it June, at last to be with Jesus, no more pain, and we look forward to our heavenly fellowship with you again.

    My Beautiful Aunty I still can’t believe that you are gone. Today is your funeral day and I’m not looking forward to it. You were the heart of our family, you had so much knowledge and wisdom and your stories of growing up on Nanda country and stories of Nana & Pop Charlie I will forever hold dear to my heart. I promise to tell my kids everything that you told me, they loved you so much. You were always there for everyone when they needed you. You were the best cook, your sponge Lillies, pufftaloons & apple slice were the best. Thank you for sharing all of your knowledge about Nanda country with me, I will miss your daily phone calls, Rest in paradise Aunty June, no more pain and suffering. Love to my cousins Wayne, Sean, Deon & Anita & their Families
    Love Sarina, Stewart, Elissa & Woody, Aaliyah & Drum, Tia, Khale & Chylah xoxo 🖤❤️💛

  20. Beth says:

    Dearest Aunty,

    Thank you.

    You gave me such inspiration. I could call on your wisdom. It was because of you I learned to understand so much. Your strength. Your positive belief. You were a force to be reckoned with – you had so much strength which I will forever remember. How you fought the fight all those years when you became involved in our historical challenges – and you never gave up. Your faith and how you believed in the good of everyone, was a special gift. I believe your voice was heard. I was honoured to have shared some laughs, secrets and good memories with you. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. I saw you as my ‘go to’ when Mum wasn’t here. Maybe I left it too late, but I know every second was worth it! Your wisdom inspired me to see things from a different perspective. Your faith gave me hope that there are truly wonderful people who can live through hard times and came out unscathed. You often expressed the love and hope for your four children, who I know will be hugely affected by you not being here, but you will be a shining addition to a long line of Ancestors that will reach the hearts and souls of all your family and theirs.

    You will never lose your position in my life. I know you will always be around, guiding me, showing me how I can move forward with the memories I shared with you. I am privileged to have spent the time with you in person, over the phone and even from a distance across the room. Aunty, you gave me hope when I needed it the most. Thank you. I’ll never forget you. We had a relationship that no-one else knows about and that I will treasure forever. Your laugh will ring in my ears and your gift of love you shared with me will never be forgotten, secrets and all! Your journey home will be welcomed by your passed loved ones who you can now join without the pain and suffering. I am honoured to have known you.

    All my love I extend to you Aunty. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.🩷🩷🩷

    Wayne, Sean, Dion, Anita and families, I send my deepest condolences and most heartfelt sorrow to you all on the loss of your beautiful Mum. Please remain strong and be kind to yourselves… You’re all in my thoughts and prayers. Love Beth XXXX 🩷🩷🩷🩷
