  • FORREST GRETCHEN Gretch I will be forever grateful for your love and nurturing from when you came into my life when I was a small tacker.

    I will miss our long chats attempting to solve the world's problems.

    Your advice was always respected and guidance on cooking much appreciated especially ANZACs.

    Our early days of country life and your love of nature passed onto me now allows us to

    Sit and listen to the birds

    in the trees

    Hear the leaves tell of

    coming breeze

    Enjoy the flowers in

    dappled sun

    All wrapped up in a sky so

    blue

    I will always love respect and admire you.

    Goodbye Gretch from son Robert, Robyn, Gavin, Steven and families xxxxx

  • FORREST GRETCHEN Our dearest mum and beloved Gretchy passed away last Friday. I was so lucky to be by her side. Much loved and sadly missed by Jude and Brian, her Lee grandchildren, their partners and her great grandchildren. Bye Mum. I'll miss you.

    FORREST (Gretchen):

    My dear vibrant and colourful Mum. I will miss you so very much.

    Patchworking, sewing workshops, holidays and having my nails done without you won't be the same.

    You were a big part of our life and we shared so much together.

    Lyn and Rob

    My dear Gretch. You've been in my life since I was 10 years old and my mother for 64 years. Over these years we have been friends, confidantes and you helped shape my life to become the person I am today. We've been through good times and bad times, happy times and sad times. You were so brave to the end.

    All my love, Nola

    FORREST (Gretchen):

    Loved mother, mother-in- law, grandmother and great grandmother. We will always remember the times we spent together camping, birthdays, Christmases and times we spent together at Tallas Road. Happy memories, and with love always.

    Nola, Eddie, Raylee, Paul, Michelle and families.
