Darling Leonie,September 24, 2020
My late mother – Pat- enjoyed a lifelong and wonderful friendship with you – her cousin- along with your late sisters- Joan and Jan.
Pat always fondly and lovingly reminisced the times you spent together in childhood.
I recall hilarious times together at family celebrations at our home and your homes in Woodend, Ocean Grove and Ballarat.
You were a wonderful host and welcomed us warmly.
We love you dearly.
I shall never forget my sometimes late night calls to my Advice line (you) helping me with everything from nappy rash or settling our babies to sleep.
The early mornings in ocean grove whist you got so much joy watching over me during the early morning feeds Lilly and Ruby-rose. It’s seemed to make your day assisting me in every way possible.
The wonderful meals and Poppy’s soups you would drop by to help out when ever you could.
Thank you so much for making my son Christopher-Robin feel so loved reading him bedtime stories or reciting hush hush whisper who dares Christoper-robin is saying his prayers.
Thank you for all the love you showed my as your daughter-inlaw and all the love you have showered over my beautiful children, may you sleep in peace and hopefully poppy will be there to greet you with his cantaloupe and news paper or perhaps his one can of Hahn ice, he will doubt say his catch fraise “Rubbish” they give you a huge hug.
R.I.P you deserve it.September 21, 2020

Goodbye Dear Leonie, my true friend of so many years.
Your family and my family almost grew up together. No Bannenberg will ever forget the support offered at our darkest hour, now more than 45 years ago. Acts of kindness that were always so happily there.
Our sincere sympathies and love to the Street family, each and every one of you.
