My Nan

My Nana and Ocearna when she was a baby(she made the swing)

Tonight I am taking the time to reflect on the life of my Nana,my Dads mother, who sadly passed away today.
Today was my eldest daughters Birthday, so a day of joy and sadness.

My Nana Ros(Jean) was a very inspirational women. I used to love her stories from the past. She was like a book. I feel she still had so much more to tell me.

A real battler, raising a family of 6, the wife of a Fisherman.

Very strong and hard working, always mending and building things,never afraid to get her hands dirty.

An Artist, avid Gardener, Golfer and Bowler

A painting for Baby Ocearna

She never stopped.

I have very fond memories of time spent with her and will miss her Wisdom...
Fun times at Straddie growing up, Nana later painting us at Deadman's Beach

Rest in Peace Nana. I will miss you
