Our family were truly blessed when Frank and Brenda became the neighbours of our Mum, Ivy Swarbrick at Emu Point. Throughout her own trials Brenda remained a beacon of positivity and inspiration, gifting a smile to all in her presence. Our heartfelt love and condolences to Frank and family.
We’ve got some happy reminiscing to do Frank.

Farewell to our dear Brenda - a wonderful bright and sassy lady who was also so kind and caring.
You offered such tremendous love and support to Frank over the years and were a loving Mum and Nanna and will be sadly missed. We are sorry we could not attend the wonderful and moving service. Our thoughts and prayers go to Frank, Kylie, Sean, Callan and Maddie and Auntie Alison. Love from Dale and Robert and family.
To Frank and Family,
My deepest condolences for the loss of Brenda.
She was always very genuine and kind to me , I will never forget her and feel very grateful to have met.
Sorry we couldn’t make it to the service, as we are up north at the moment, but have watched it online and it was a beautiful way to celebrate the life of Brenda.
Love from Chris
My heartfelt sympathy and deepest condolences to Frank, Kylie, Sean and family. There are still great and ever present memories of kindness and warmth that go back 35 years. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
Brenda, you will be dearly missed as you were a part of our lives for so many years, sharing in the memorable milestones that our combined families have enjoyed. You have left us with countless memories that we will cherish, and keep alive, and you will always have a special place in our hearts. Rest In Peace. Our deepest condolences and special love to Frank, Kylie, Sean, Callan and Madelyn on the loss of your beautiful soul mate and wife, mum and Nana B.
To my beautiful friend, Kylie - sending you love and blessings on this special but difficult day. Love to Sean, Callan, Maddy and especially Frank, Mr Atkins - for strength and comfort in the wonderful memories and inspiration you have from Brenda.
I always remember being a bit terrified of your mum, as a teenager, mostly because I knew she would sniff out anytime we were up to no good. She was and is amazing and I'm grateful to have had a small piece of connection with her and your family.
Be strong, be brave and be adventurous in the memory of your mum.
Deepest sympathy to Frank and family - lovely service and memories of Brenda.
So sarry we couldn't be there.

To Brenda, I will never forget the first time I was invited to yours and Frank’s house for dinner, Kylie had made tuna lasagna, at the time I did not know it was a thing, you supplied me with lots of water to wash it down, from that day on I was forever in your debt. I will always reminisce the times with you and Frank, life is short time is luck, I definitely count myself lucky to have had the opportunity to spend time with you. Love to Frank, Kylie, Sean, Callan & Maddie.
Wonderful memories of our lovely friend and neighbour Brenda. We are sorry we can not be with you today to celebrate Brendas life but we are thinking of you Frank and your family.

To our very dearest Aunty Brenda,
You were such a beautiful, kind and caring soul, that exuded joy, laughter and adventure. I just loved your smile and laugh. It could light up the room. You always had so much love to give to the special people in your life. I am so very grateful for the memories I have of you, and take comfort knowing you have grown your angel wings and have been reunited with Poppy Johnny, Grandad and the rest of your family.
