  1. Sending my love and condolences to all of the family. I remember many visits to Hilda and Irvines house, the lovely times and the cute dogs. Hilda always had a gift for me for Xmas and was so kind, thoughtful and caring. Thank you Hilda for being a beautiful person. Lots of love Sarah & Thomas. Xx

  2. I was trying to remember how long I have known Hilda. I couldn’t come up with an exact number but lets just say over 40 years. Over all these years there were
    the family birthdays, Xmas and any other functions in which Hilda would be sitting in Tony / Gail’s lounge waiting to welcome you, then proceed in having a
    catch up on all the news.
    Truly a wonderful lady who will be sadly missed by all.

  3. Each year around Christmas I have thought of Hilda and wondered how she was. That was the time Avril, Simon, Ruth and I would always come to visit Irving and Hilda and their little dogs. The first time was many years ago but my memories of Hilda were of her smiling, happy face and her interest in us all and our lives. I know Simon and Ruth always enjoyed meeting up with her and will miss the love and care she showed us all. She led a loving, generous life and will be missed by all of us. Lots of love John, Simon & Jodie, Essence, Serena & Ayla and Ruth

  6. Nan,so many memories. From dancing with you in 1976 at Tainton Road to the Bee Gees. Then later with you and Irvine. So many interstate pokie trips, such great laughs. Coming in every week for lunch for 5 years when i worked at Glen Waverley Knowing you were always there was such a comfort or being able to call for a chat. But i was lucky to have my grandmother for 51 years and you will be greatly missed. Love you Nan. Say hi to Irvine, Shelley. Xxx

  7. We are very sad to hear that our greatnan has passed. We all loved going to her house growing up, seeing her dog, having a cup of tea and listening to her many stories about growing up in the war and everything she would get up too in England. We will cherish the time we spent with her and always remember her fondly. A lovely person with so much wisdom and kind heart. Sending lots of love and condolences to the family.
