    Frances Brown a loving mother to 4 beautiful amazing children, a grandmother to 7 amazing grandchildren and a great grandmother to 5 Beautiful great grandchildren.

    My Amazing Gran, On Sunday the 7 of November a day of worship in the eyes of the church, God opened up the heavens and called you to come home. He welcomed you with open arms and lead you to your first Sunday mass up in the sky above.

    There won’t be a day where we don’t think about this amazing woman and the life she helped forged for her children which in turn guides all of us grandchildren and great grandchildren through this life.

    Although she no longer walks this earth, she has gained her angel wings and is a shining light for those of us she leaves behind.

    She is not alone, She is with God and all those who have passed before her.

    On Monday we will farewell you one last time as we once knew you here on earth but we know your looking down on us still guiding us and one day we will be reunited, we will see you again.

    Although we can’t be there in person due to border closures we will be watching live stream and will be there in Spirit.

    We send all our love to family both immediate and extended during this hard time.

    Untill we see you again Gran May you Rest In Peace

    Love from Kate, Shane and Lauren xxx

    Gran you were a godly woman full of love and integrity. You were an amazing role model and matriarch to our family, guiding us to do the right thing and live full and meaningful lives. You are so dearly loved and missed. Rest in peace with God.

    All my love to our family, both immediate and extended. Your South Australian family (due to border closures) will join you on the live stream of the mass, and be with you in spirit.

    With love and sadness,
    Victoria, Angus and Albert xoxo

    Frances was one special lady who will be missed greatly. She was our Historian of our respective family trees and one could ask a question and she would know the whole family. Our thoughts are with Frances family at this time. R.I.P.
