Beloved daughter to Annie and Charlie; kid sister to Di and Peter; wife and partner in life to Bill; Mum and advisor to Mark, Stephen, Ruth and Heidi; proud grandma to Drew, Ron and Ben; passionate volunteer to church, hospital and Guiding; a loyal friend to share a laugh or a tear.

Lift up your heart, and peace to thee; God wanted me now; He set me free
