  1. Auntie Laurel was a compassionate, caring lady who loved her family and her Church family. She was a constant and very present Aunt to Marilyn and I as we grew up in Warragul. She and Mum wrote letters to each other weekly and she told me last week that there was very little Marilyn and I did as youngsters that she didn’t know about.
    Since retiring to Traralgon she and Mum rarely went more than a couple of days without seeing each other. She was a constant in Mum, Dad, Marilyn, my and my daughter Lisa’s life. Her absent will be sorely missed. Rest in peace Auntie.

  2. Deepest sympathy to the family of Rev Laurel Davey. Laurel officiated at my husband’s father’s funeral and just 4 weeks later officiated at our wedding. Laurel continued to give us constant care and compassion during what was a difficult and also joyous times. Laurel continued to remain in contact with the family for many years after leaving her parish at Nyah West in Northern Victoria. My husband John and l have been married for 41 years and still remember Laurel as a kind, caring and spiritual lady who will be greatly missed by all that loved and knew her. May she rest in peace in the Kingdom of God that she richly deserves, love John and Terri Hughes.

  5. I have known Laurel for many years. She was a dignified lady who was always consistent and faithful in her witness to Christ. In her relationships with colleagues she evidenced an attractive, pleasing manner, was always courteous, respectful and gentle.

  6. Dear Laurel.
    You are home away from the body now, but very much alive in our hearts. You have modelled for me from my childhood a generosity that surpasses race and culture. We arrived in Australia with our parents knowing noone and with no family. You were one of those that welcomed us and played a big part in our settling into a new land. I recall you taking the 5 of us to buy our school uniforms, books, school bag etc. From that first week we arrived, you showed us the love of God that welcomes all with your love and care. We will never forget you Laurel. You became another mum and grandma for us. Thank you, thank you, thank you. We wish we could be there at your final service to give you the honor and respect you deserve. However, you are now home, and you know we will always love and appreciate you.
    One day we shall meet again.
    With all our Love, Taega Leota on behalf of Penaia & Meisi Penaia Te’o Family.

  7. I remember Laurel as a friendly caring lady.I only met her when I joined Probus but I enjoyed chatting to her on the walks & at meetings. I especially enjoyed the time I shared the accommodation with her on a Probus trip to Bright & we had some lovely chats at the end of day.

  9. Rev Laurel was the Minister in Donald when my dad, Gordon Trollop, died in 1987. Laurel was a firm friend of our family then and continued to be through out the years. Mum and Laurel communicated each Christmas with their letters being a good catch up of the year. My mother, Rita, my brother, Laurie and my sister , Helen and I were saddened to hear of Laurel’s death. She lead a wonderful and fulfilling life having such a variety of interests…so inspiring. Our love and sympathy go to all Laurel’s family. The tributes I have read say how much she was loved by all.
