A memorial & farewell for Dorothy Frances Nuttall










Dorothy Frances Nuttall

22nd June 1926 to 14th July 2015


Friday 23rd October 2015
We held a lovely Memorial and Farewell for David's mother
Dorothy Frances Nuttall.


Dorothy passed away unexpectedly on 14th July 2015 after a severe fall causing a brain bleed in the aged care facility Hawthorn Village that left her in a coma for two days.  Over twenty friends joined David, me and his daughter Laura at the Uniting Church at Kippax in Canberra to reminisce and say goodbye. Many thanks to my friend Jill Robertson for her help and advice.  Here are just a couple of photos of Dorothy's friends and family from the gathering.
























Death leaves a heartache no one can heal.  Love leaves a memory no one can steal.
