EATTS (Doolann-Leisha):

We have been together fifty years, the best years of my life and I thank God for bringing us together this far. You have not left me for you are always deep within my heart, our memories and photographs will be my comfort until we meet again. From your loving husband Walter.

EATTS (Doolann-Leisha):

Mum and Gran, you were a battler all your life, and you have shown us the enduring quality you had was your fighting spirit and your never give in attitude, and always standing up for what you believed in.

You were a woman of faith and acknowledged God in your life. You loved us unconditionally and always had time for all of us and all our family.

We are rich in our Nyungah culture because you taught us about our connections and relationships with our family and extended family, our language and country, and our stories which is your legacy to us, and we will carry this with us always.

From your loving Children, Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren.
