    We remember a wonderful lady, who always had a remedy for anything, especially using Apple Cider Vinegar!
    Her sponge cakes were the most delicious and amazing sweet.
    A kind and giving lady, who had a big heart.

    Dear Margaret, Kathy, Geoff, Phillip and families, on behalf of Robert, Ian, myself and our families, I wish to extend our sincerest condolences on the sad loss of Elma (Mrs Pongy).
    Elma was a kind, loving, gentle and generous lady as well as a beloved neighbour and friend to our family. We are extremely grateful to have grown up with Elma and Charlie as our neighbours and can remember many good times, particularly the wonderful baking smells that would drift over the grapevines. Elma’s cooking was amazing and I would always find myself dropping over to say hello when she was cooking just to get a sample 🙂
    Her banter with Dad (Mr Bob) always brought a smile to our faces. Her kindness and friendship to Mum (Shirley) particularly in hard times will always be held dear. So many great memories. She will be sadly missed. Our thoughts are with you at this time.
    Much love to you all.
