Funeral Notice

  1. I am so sad to hear of the passing of Kylie. She was such a wonderful person. Always had a positive can-do attitude. A great work colleague and a real pleasure to have known. I pass on my condolences to her husband Peter and her children.

  2. Gone to soon. Heard about your passing today and I am in total shock and disbelief. You were like a second mum to Judd and he loved you very much, we all loved you very much! You were a caring person and we always loved to have our chats when I would pick Judd up from you. I just don’t know how to deal with news. Condolences to Peter, Jacob and Izzy during this time.

  4. Condolences Peter, Jacob and Izzy on the sad passing of Kylie.

    Your friendship will be sadly missed after so many years of a quick drop off for Brent that always turned into staying for a cuppa and hours long chats. You were always happy to have Brent even if you didn’t know about until I showed up with him.

    Our thoughts and prayers for the rest of the family at this time.

    Jo-Anne, Jamie, Brent, Connor & Kyle McInnes October 14, 2020

  8. Kylie was the heart and soul of goodstart mount Helen, she had so much passion and love for the children and always wanted what was best. Work will never be the same without you and I thank you for your guidance in making me the educator I am today! Thank you for showing love and care to my son and always putting his needs first and giving him the cuddles through out the day. You will always be his ‘best friend’
    You will be greatly missed.
    To your loving family my deepest condolences.
    RIP Kylie 💕

  9. Dear Peter, Jacob, Izzy and family
    Words of comfort , an answer to WHY???
    One theory I have heard is as a tree laden with fruit will naturally return the fruit to the earth when mature or fall as small allowing room for fruit to florish. The cycle of the trees life will continue as will Kylie. Her life is, Does and will in All Ways allow us to florish.
    Billy florished in Kylies care, loving my son as a mother and protector of all that is good. Living on in our tree of life!
    Jacob and Izzy I will pray everyday hoping that in some unexplainable way you may receive my love and strength in your journey. Your mum is your tree now forever and All Ways in part of you.
    In time you will both flourish, if only I could see the magnificence of your tree.
    What a privilege that would be.
    God Bless you Kylie

  11. We will miss you Kylie for your cheeky cackle of a laugh, for organising us, for your total dedication to your lovely family Pete, Jacob, Isabella and extended family of people and animals! Growing up we looked up to you for your style and fashion sense, especially in the 80s, for encouraging me (Sjaan) to step outside my comfort zone (except for the horse riding!), school holiday adventures through the paddocks of Little River where we would roam for hours and you would scare us with your haunted house stories! Jack and Haley – you always welcomed us in your house Aunty Kylie, picked us from school when we were sick and looked after us! We always had fun and you made us laugh. We will remember you forever. Sending our love to you and your family.

  23. I am so grateful to have known Kylie, and what an amazing, wonderful human being she was.
    Kylie cared so much about the children and families she worked with. She grew so many relationships and was always available to listen and take on board what required attention.
    As a mum of Goodstart Mount Helen, I deeply enjoyed our conversations we would have about life, children, work.. Kylie was always proud talking about her family, especially her children.
    Kylie made such a large impact and her beautiful laugh, spirit and energy will always be greatly missed.
    My condolences to Peter, Jacob, Izzy and close family and friends.
    Kylie will be beautifully remembered by many.

  26. Kylie, you were the most amazing soul. You understood me, my battles and you supported me through them. I am so grateful to have known you, being able to work side by side with you this year, learn from you and have you as a friend. I will miss those late nights, our check lists and those deep heart to hearts.

    You were so caring towards my little boy. I know he will always remember your cuddles and love. To see someone love Hudson so much and spoil him with those sneaky chocolates just melted my heart. Mount Helen will not be the same, but we will make you so proud.

    Peter, Jacob and Izzy our hearts and love are with you all. You wife and mum was an amazing woman and I know you will carry that always in your hearts.

    Thanks Kylie for everything.
    Forever in our hearts.

    Lots of love

    Kylie you praised me at times I doubted myself and your presence was grand, always a good morning when I started my shift and a see you tomorrow at the end of the day.
    I’ll never forget you sitting with us during lunch break and sharing stories and wisdom.
    I am so deeply sorry to your family, friends and my fellow team members at goodstart mount Helen, you have left a hole that will never be filled and a legacy of many who loved you, knew your integrity, felt your strength, admired you and were taught by you.
    I am so deeply saddened by your untimely departure and as you wrote to in the last email you sent me when this pandemic began, “Take Care Steph, I’ll see you on the other side” I’ll never forget you Kylie and I will surely greet you at the gates of Heaven someday.
    It was an honor to know you, a blessing to work for you and one of the saddest days saying goodbye to you, rest in peace dear Kylie for only the good die young and some are just too beautiful for this world, bye for now xx

    Steph Lazzara October 13, 2020
  29. What a gal! I had the absolute pleasure of getting to know Kylie when I recently worked with her at Mount Helen Goodstart. She was a bundle of energy, had great determination and loved coming to the Nursery to hug the babies. She spoke often of her beautiful family to me and how much she loved, adored and was absolutely dedicated to the happiness and well-being of her children. It is with a deeply saddened heart I say goodbye to this strong, funny woman. My deepest condolences to Peter, Jake and Izzy and to all the family and friends who loved her.
    Rest in Peace Kylie and thank you for bringing joy and that wickedly joyful laugh to so many people’s lives.

Sending all our love to Peter, Jacob, Isabella and family.
