What a beautiful service.

Nola is going to be missed by so many and leaves a HUGE gap in the lives of those around her.
Rest in Peace Nola, until that Glorious Day when we all wake up to meet the Lord ❤

I am extremely saddened by the passing of my dearest friend, Nola,but know she now rests in the arms of Jesus, beyond all grief and pain. It is in times of loss that we realise just how special true friends really are. I already miss her almost daily e-mails and so much more to me, showing the wonderful friend I had in Nola. And I was not the only recipient of her kindness as there were many others. Heaven has marked her consistent christian life for which she will be rewarded with the words, "Come ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. (Matt 25:34)" on that great and glorious day when Jesus returns.
May we all hear the same from our Saviour.

Dear Janette and family,

Our sincere condolences during this time of loss. Keeping you and the family in our prayers, even as we look forward to the day when "He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away" (Revelation 21:4)

Dear Janette and Family,
Our sincere condolences, we can but imagine the feeling of loss you are experiencing, but are always reminded that the greater the love shared the greater the pain felt. We trust that in time, your hurt now will come to represent a memorial, to her life so lovingly shared and the fond memories you will always retain.

So very saddened to hear of your passing Nola. You will always hold a special place in my heart with fond and special memories growing up of your beautiful smile, generous and caring nature, and I will remember how your face lit up when you laughed. My deepest sympathy goes out to Janette & Kevin, Dougie & Tanya, Melinda & Andrew along with your grandchildren, great grandchildren and extended family.

While you are no longer with us, you will forever be remembered. Rest in Peace

Dear Janette, Melinda, Doug and families,

Your mum/grandma was an inspiration to us. We have many special memories of her from the Yarra Valley SDA church and remember her taking Sabbath school for our children many years ago. She will always be remembered as such a positive, strong person full of faith.
May God comfort you all at this sad time and give you hope of that beautiful resurrection morning when we shall see her again.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Peter, Patricia, Amy and Caleb Cieslar

Nola has been a wonderful part of our neighbourhood, she was always a kind, considerate and a caring person. I was grateful to have gotten to know her. My thoughts are with her family during his time.
With love Louise

My sincere condolences to Nola's family. I got to know Nola as we walked our dogs together, chatted and shared our faith. I knew you only for a short time Nola but enjoyed the fellowship we shared. Until we meet

Love you Nola

Sandie Priftis on 11 November, 2021 at 7:10pm

My sincere condolences to all who loved Nola. My favorite childhood memories were full of Nola and Merv. Friday night fish and chip nights were a fond favorite. Birthday parties full of Nolas homemade treats were especially memorable. Climbing the backyard Lemon tree and raiding it was a definite fun Sandie activity in the Robins backyard.
My favorite day was holding Nolas hand one last time in the same way you would hold a mother’s hand. She was like a second mother to me in my childhood years and I will never forget her loving and kind heart. To Nola - I will miss you and keep you in my heart forever. Rest peacefully with Merv, together again. Lots of love, Sandie Priftis.

Janie Denholm on 10 November, 2021 at 10:50pm

To my Melbourne mum. Guardian angel and best friend. Thank you for everything you helped me with through my hardest time. You and Merv will forever be in my heart. The earth will never be the same without you but your beautiful family lives on. Condolences to the family you are a testament to Nola and Merv.. All my love and hugs xxxx

My deepest sympathy to all the family on losing Nola.
She struggled on for so long and don't wish her any more pain.
Love to all.

Thelma Wawrzonek on 10 November, 2021 at 5:58pm

Nola was a special friend to my mother Thelma McHarg . They worked together at Merrindale and mum introduced Nola to her church family. We as a family have fond memories of Nola and Mervyn. They attended my parents 50th wedding anniversary in 1993. Nola was there for us supporting us at both my brothers funerals. Forever grateful for her wonderful friendship.

Margaret Ritter on 10 November, 2021 at 12:07am

Extremely sad time for your family. Nola reunited with your dad.
Its hard to speak on behalf of our family, as Mum and Ken would say there own beautiful memories. But I remember the softly spoken lady.
I only wish you / siblings to support each other at this sad time,

Debbie Arch on 9 November, 2021 at 9:09pm

My deepest sympathies. Thinking of you. xxx

Pr David & Mary Maxwell on 9 November, 2021 at 8:11pm

Our prayers and thoughts are with you all today. Nola was a good friend, kind and caring church member and loving wife and mother. I'm sure she will be long remembered for her selfless service to her church, friends and family and caring attitude to all she met. May she rest in peace until Jesus comes to raise her again and may He give you comfort for your loss as you wait.

Maria Sikking on 9 November, 2021 at 4:23pm

I was truly saddened to hear of Nola's passing. I have so many beautiful memories of our time together in Cairns and saw Nola has a heart of gold and a passion for Christ, her family and to serve her community. My thoughts, prayers and love go out to Janette and the rest of Nola's family. She will be missed by so many.
