  8. So many good memories of lovely ‘Aunty’ Val. On holiday visits as a kid – Val laughing at breakfast, noisy cousins around the enormous old table in the homestead kitchen. Warm milk in a billy can, straight from the cowshed, summoned at her command. Baths in one inch of shared precious tank water. Her hard work on the farm, always a soft heart for the cows. Val’s ‘new’ house that seemed to be always filled with visitors and good cheer around the enormous grate. The boundless loving care she showed for Frank and little Kate. Her calm presence and love of family in happy times and in adversity. So loved in return. Always in my heart. Love to Peter, Ross, Kerri and Jane, their partners and family.

  9. Wonderful childhood memories of time spent on the farm with my dearest Aunty Val. And our children years later remember their Great Aunt’s visit and her gifts of beautiful books, which she sat and fondly read to them.
    A beautiful soul with immense talent and grace.
    We will miss your gentle smile and generous spirit.
    Sleep well darling Val,
    Love, David, Julie and family
