Wonderful lady who with Laurie was so much an icon at Gormandale and the footy and cricket clubs. So many wonderful memories of Laurie and Annette going way back to the days at Flynn Tree Farm in the early 70’s. Im still jealous Wool that Your Mum allowed to you to pin the Sherbert and Skyhooks tv week posters to your bedroom wall when they were considered too out there for me at the time ! Deepest sympathy to Digger, Wooly, David and Julie and all your families at this difficult time. Wonderful lady who lives on in you all. Cherish your many memories.

R.I.P Aunty Annette
So many memories, from the house in the Flynn Plantation, which had one of the best backyard cricket pitches to the Gormandale house with one of the best trees to climb. The matches between Glengarry and Gormandale, mainly football, but also cricket. The family gatherings growing up are memories that are cherished and missed, even those Charlie Pride records which inevitably ended up in a Crystal Chandeliers sing along.
Loved and liked by so many.
Deepest sympathy to Mark, Craig, David, Julie and their families.
Love Chris, Jacqui and Milly.July 17, 2020

Gormandale – Annette. Annette – Gormandale. The words are synonymous! She was as much a part of Gromandale as Gormandale was of here. She lived and breathed it. Such a family history there. What can you say about Annette? Fun loving, strong, an independent thinker, she called a spade a bloody spade, was very creative and a fabulous wife, mother and friend. She was someone you could rely on. I will miss her great stories, her laugh, her joy and her strength. Gone too soon. Anne Truex- Hermens x xJuly 18, 2020
