Dear Mum, I know that last 19 years since Dad died has been a challenge for you. And the last 9 months has been incredibly difficult for all of us. You faced life with courage, bravery and humour. Now you are reunited with Dad- your Billy. I miss you everyday. Thanks you for being my Mum. Love RossyXX

Patching in live from Sydney, what a wonderful service to celebrate the amazing life of Muriel - Our Amazing Aunty Moo (OAAM). Very fine words from all speakers. While her knitting needles may now be silent, there will be lots of catch up chatter with Uncle Bill. God bless you Muriel - you were always a kind and SPECIAL Aunt to the Martin mob and an inspiring Great Aunt to the O'Martins.

Today I'am thinking about Muriel Nanna with love and a sense of loss of a wonderful woman.When I think of Muriel I remember watching her knitting and as she watched TV and amazing feat. Bill bought her a knitting m,machine but because she couldn't TV as she used it she didn't complete anything. I was the only one to ever knit a jump on that machine. I remember watching the footy finials on the TV with Muriel laughing and carrying on. Muriel was famous not only for presure cooker stew but her chocolate cake. That never goes out of fashion. I was incredibly proud of Muriel for what she achieved in her life despite her hearing disability. She used her disability to help others. Muriel was the backbone along with Bill in the engineering business with her meticulous book keeping skills.But what I most want to thank Muriel for is being a great wonderful Nanna to my children Heidi and Hayden.

Well, Muriel Nanna, the great memories I have of you and will hold forever are the fun we had together watching the footy finals, the knitting you did to relax when watching TV. What about the knitting machine Bill bought you? I was the only one to complete a jumper.Having a hearing issue all your life you headed off to Better Hearing and became a great leader and teacher achieving notable Australian award for your commitment. The cakes you made were some thing we all looked forward to. The footy finals we watched on TV and cheering for whoever was playing are all very fond memories. You were the backbone of Bill's business by keeping the books so well. But your greatest achievement was being a wonderful Nanna to my children.

Condolences to Muriel’s family. Many memories travelling to Burwood in Melbourne by train with our mother Eve Angus. I’m sure lots of adventures and laughs on these travels. A great loss to you and the Better Hearing community. Kind regards. The Angus family
