    My condolences to all the family. I will always remember Aunt Winnie. Audrey Marshall would keep me informed on how she is doing. I loved staying with her back in the fifties when my mom would take me to stay on school holidays. She was so sweet and I will always remember those days. Love Sheila Richardson, Western Australia
