20.06.1924 - 22.10.2020 Dear Mum, we all thought you were the best. A kind, generous loving person, you put us first before yourself. In school holidays you would teach us to sew, knit and create games for the 3 of us. Even Dad would bring a stranger home from football, it was no trouble for you to cook a meal. You would stay up late making costumes for fancy dress parties and ball gowns to perfection. We could write a million words and it wouldn't cover what you did for us. In our eyes, you were our Queen. We thank you, we'll miss you and love you forever.

Yvonne, Helen and Russell xxx

    What a wonderful life you had raising your family with Norm and then meeting Ron and the great holidays you shared.

    Dear Mum, your love of family surrounds us and you are the ribbon that holds us together. We miss your cheekiness, laughter and the many stories of your life. We love you wholly. Rest in Peace Mum Love Russell, Penne and families

    BOASE (Elva):

    To our dearest Nanna Boase, we have so many wonderful memories which we will cherish forever. Your stories, your laugh and your beautiful blue eyes which lit up for all your Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren. We will miss you immensely, but we will always remember you.

    Love Brett, Sharon, Chloe, Cate and Alyssa Schaper

    BOASE (Elva):

    To my amazing, courageous, beautiful Nanna Boase. Well the time has come to leave this earth and join your loved ones in Heaven. Life for us has been so treasured with so many memories from the jet black, to the gosh - another holiday spending our inheritance or the amazing treats in the kitchen. We all loved you so much and words are not enough for how much you will be missed.

    Love forever Rebecca (George), Brett, Mitchell and Harrison Forsyth

    BOASE (Elva):

    With deep sadness we say our final goodbyes to our beautiful Nanna and rejoice the celebration of your life. Nanna, there is no one like you on this earth. You have lived, forgiven, loved and cherished all. Love you to the moon and back.

    Lee-Anne, Mark, Isaac and Sienna Trainer

    BOASE (Elva):

    Dear Nanna, 96 years, what an amazing innings. Still to this day no one cooks a better lamb roast and banana cake than you. Love you and miss you always.

    Bryan, Megan, Sebastian and Scarlett Coates

    BOASE (Elva):

    There is so much to say about you Nan, but I will keep it short and to the point. Your selflessness shone through to the end of your days. The strength and resilience you showed over the years taught us what we need to get through all stages of life. I am stoked I got to spend a good part of the last year whipping you up amazing feeds and spending quality time with you. You may have left us in body, but your spirit will always be with us and it will absolutely be in the new beginning growing inside me. Love ya Nan.

    Donna and Andrew Reed

    BOASE (Elva):

    Life is a balance of holding on and letting go. Nan, you fought hard to stay with us but now you are at peace and watching us from above. As Kobe said, "Nan's heart was so big earth couldn't hold it." We will always love you to infinity and beyond.

    Until we meet again RIP Nanna Love your Grandies Marieka, Luke, Kobe and Abby Zanin and your Fur Grandies Spike and Angel

    20.6.1924 - 22.10.2020 Fun long lifetime memories of Coates' holidays at Kowald's farm, Cherry Tree Pool, Kojonup. Can still taste Elva's duck and rabbit stew cooked on wood stove. So many lovely memories.
