  4. Dear Helen, your mum was the loveliest of ladies but even more so, I have the fondest memories of your beautiful mum as being the best teacher who taught me needlecraft, typing and shorthand. That was a very long time ago but she has always been a very loving memory as I’m sure you will always have the most fondest and loving memories of your beautiful mum, nan, great grandma and friend. May she Rest In Peace. 💐

  7. Betty and I shared an office at Yallourn Technical College for a few years. I remember her for her great sense of humour and the time that she would explain to students what was needed to become a better writer.
