    I remember Liz and Maurice fondly when growing up. I used to go there a lot with Alison and Lewis as kids growing up. Liz was just the the most beautiful and warm soul. Always so welcoming and caring.
    Sending love to you Maurie, Hilary, Alison, Lewis and family. I know how special she was to you all xxx

  • Dale Bennett

    Saddened to hear of Liz’s passing. Liz was my very able library assistant at Merbein in the early years of my career. She was also a friend and a confident to me as a young mother, providing practical advice. I will miss the chats we have had over the years. Liz worked tirelessly for the school, the town and Mildura Shire. Condolences to the family.
