Service. 30.04.2010

Ella May Robertson

Aged 92 Years 10.05.1917-25.04.2010

Family members & friends attended the Celebration of Life of Ella May Robertson on Friday 30th April, 2010. The service was held within the West Chapel of Pinegrove Memorial Park, Minchinbury & officiated by Celebrant Michelle Latham.

The service commenced with the playing of “Amazing Grace” by Barry Gray from Pipers of Distinction – a wonderful beginning as Scottish music played a large part in Ella’s life.

Family members from near & far travelled to bid farewell to a lady who was described as shy, loving, emotional but also one that had a wicked sense of humour & bought a smile to many faces.

Many of Ella’s friends from Governor Philip Day Club were also in attendance as she had formed strong & loyal friendships with the members.

A wonderful mother, sister, aunty, Nan, mother in law & friend, Ella will be sadly missed but never forgotten as she was instrumental in ensuring that she touched many lives throughout her own journey…

Ella May Robertson's Guestbook

  1. Nana, you were loved by so many of us, and we are all vastly different yet you loved us all the same. I will forever treasure my many memories of growing up with you around, and when the miles kept us apart you were drawn closer to my heart. It was with much pride that you were chosen to be my first child’s God Mother and Pa her God Father. You were there for me when I had all three of my children, and you were so proud when you became a great great Grandmother. There will never be enough words to describe how much you meant to me and I will always treasure my last visit with you on 13/03/10 with Mel and Lily and our last hugs from you. Rest in peace Nan, you are in a better place now and I know you will live on in so many hearts.

  2. Nana, saying goodbye to you for the last time was so hard for me. My first memories have you in them jumping into bed with you and pa when we lived with you. When Pa was taken from us that was so very hard to accept I loved him with all my heart and missed him so much. Now you have been taken from us the only comfort I have is that you are with Pa and are together again. You left us with no warning it was sudden and quick which is the way you would have wanted to go but still nana I have cried a river of tears since that day. Yes you had a great life you lived to be 92 but that has not made it any easier to say goodbye. We love you nana and always will until the day we are all reunited again.
    you are in our hearts forever and ever
    love you always
    your granddaughter Michelle
    grandson-in-law Michael
    great grandson Alec

  3. To our dearest darling Nana,
    Up in Heaven, high above,
    I know today your with us all,
    And sending all your love.

    Today we all remember you,
    And bid you one last goodbye,
    Celebrate the life you’ve had
    And maybe have a cry.

    You’ll never be forgotten Nan,
    I’ll just close my eyes and see,
    Your smiling face and feel your love
    And you’ll be close to me.

    You had such a long life,
    So many have so less,
    It was your time, the Angels came,
    And placed you with the best.

    So dear Nana, up above
    although you’re no longer here,
    In our hearts is where we’ll keep you,
    Forever, you’ll be near.
    Nan you will be forever in our hearts with all the memories we have of you will never be forgotten.
    Thank you for being my Nana,

  4. We have lost the most important person in our lives. you loved us and we loved you even more if that could be possible. we grew up with you shared our lives with you all the fun times and the sad times.we soon learned how to zoom a wheelchair around over volcanoes up cobbled stoned hills in and out of busses and on cruise ships making craft and jewellery playing dress ups and manicures and pedicures nail polish and makeup. there will be one off a few new great grand children you will not see and that is going to be a very sad day for us to bear but we know you will be watching . we all had fun taking you on holidays getting lost meeting new people seeing how it was to live in far off countries and most of all spend the precious time with you.

    You didnt give us warning so we didnt all get to say good by but we had all spent time with you not long before you left on your final journey.

    we give you a smile and a kiss every time we walk past your photos that are all around our house the house that was your home with us for such a long time and so much apart of our lives that will never be able to be replaced.

    to my beautiful mum and our very special nana, we will miss you so much our sadness will last a life time.
    your love will be carried on in hearts for ever more

  5. “You can shed tears that she is gone,
    or you can smile because she lived.
    You can close your eyes and pray that she’ll come back,
    or you can open your eyes and see all she’s left.
    Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her,
    or you can be full of the love you shared.
    You can remember her only that she is gone,
    or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
    You can cry and close your mind,
    be empty and turn your back.
    Or you can do what she’d want:
    smile, open your eyes, love and go on.”

    Miss you Nan.

  6. Another year has passed without you in our lives, but you are forever in our hearts.

    Miss you Nan

  7. Missing you right now.

  8. Another year the sadness grows more not less the empty place in my heart cant be filled i wish that you could have a hug from a darling little boy who knows you and loves you who has stolen my heart but there will always be that one space that only you have ever filled.i hope you hear my hellos as i walk past your photos and wish you good night as i go up stairs oh how i wish i could have made that last hug and kiss bigger and longer that you would not have been alone as you left us if i had only known that last kiss good night would be the one that would be with me forever.you are never far away from my thoughts but as the day closes and the time you left grows closer i wish i could hold you one more time give you a kiss and a hug and say goodbye one more time love you.

'Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.'
