Dear Ray, Samantha, Anissa & families, The happy memories and love you shared with Mariae will be in your hearts and minds forever. I shared many adventurous hikes with Mariae and we were drawn to each other by our similar sense of humour. Of course we both barracked very loudly for our Bulldogs and Mariae and Ray were so proud of having a photo with the 2016 AFL Premiership Cup. We will miss our social outings with you at the Barwon Bulldogs functions. Rest peacefully Mariae. Lesley & Geoff James

My thoughts and prayers are with you Ray and family at the very sad passing of Mariae. I have lovely memories of club walks with Mariae and appreciate the many times she gave to the Geelong Bushwalking club as an experienced and knowledgeable walk leader and her walks led with a love of the outdoors and sense of humour.

Many digs at each other but all in good fun; and always laughs afterwards. Will miss her views of life and our jokes about what men & women do differently ... like 'over or under' when replacing a toilet roll. Memory Lane will be an everlasting track for Mariae to travel in Heaven. Thoughts with you, Ray... Go Bulldogs!!!

The Melbourne Women’s Walking Club were deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Mariae. She was an active member of the Club from 1996 to 2013. Many Club members have very warm memories of Mariae - of her great sense of humour, her warmth, generosity of spirit and sense of fun. Our heartfelt condolences go to Ray and the family at this time.

Dear Ray, It was a lovely service for Mariae I,m sure she would have been pleased with it. That day in Hawaii was funny as she rang me to gloat about being in my favourite place...... little did she know we were in the hotel right next door to yours!!! I have lovely memories of Mariae and I will never forget her. Take care of yourself and Pip. Thinking of you. Pauline
