  • COCK (KATHLEEN)

    Thank you for all the life lessons that you taught me to become the man I am today. The most important lessons were learnt from watching you live your life with an amazing work ethic and compassion and love for all humanity. Your adventurous spirit will live on through your children all the lives that you have touched along the way. Mum, I pray that I can live to be half the person you were and have my children look up to you as I do to you. Through this, your legacy will live on forever. We love you Mum from Michael, Kymn, Derek and Tenielle.

    To me, she was MUM, an unstoppable force of nature, loving, caring and gentle, dedicated to giving her children every opportunity at life. Mum was also Grandma, Nanna, Mother-in-Law, Sister and Aunty to her extended family as well as friend, sponsor, inspiration and matron to many more. Mum, you've left us to join Grandma and all those have gone before, your departure will leave a hole in all our lives, but you will be in our hearts forever. Love always Bruce Nok, Alexander and Jayden.

  • COCK KATHLEEN To my dearest Mum.

    I will be forever grateful for all that you have done for me, from the day I was born right through to the end when you waited for me to come home.

    You were, and always will be, my hero and the woman I strive to be every day.

    The impression you made in people's hearts will remain with them forever.

    You gave the boys and I the tools we required to succeed at this thing called life and I will miss you more that I can ever express. You will always be my guiding star!

    I love you Mum, forever your Daughter, Lesley xx

  • COCK KATHLEEN An extraordinary person in anyone's language, you were our Mum!

    You were always there to support us through thick and thin, always had our backs and above all, showed us what it meant to be FAMILY.

    I am so proud to have been able to call you my Mum and to have you as Nana Kate to all of our tribe.

    Forever in our thoughts, always in our hearts.

    With love always, Pat and Pauline, Nancy and Craig, Kara, Natsshia, Cantrell, Katarzna, Jett, Olivia.
