Memories of Fay Tyrril

On Saturday morning (29 January) my Grandmother Fay Tyrril passed away peacefully.

On Thursday will be her funeral, which will be sad and not to mention I hate goodbyes...

As we are a "blended family" its nice to be included in the service. I will be doing a reading that Fay's daughter has picked out.

That God’s love and strength may be strong in the hearts of the young people of our up-and-coming generation...............Lord hear us.

TYRRIL, Fay Virtue
(formerly Tierney) nee Wilson Passed away peacefully on 29th January, 2011, at St Andrews Nursing Home, Tallebudgera. Formerly of Zillmere and Kedron. Aged 84 Years. Beloved Wife of Frank Tyrril and Jack Tierney (both deceased). Much loved Mum of Chris, Carol, Jeff, Sue, Shane and Cherie. Loving Grandma to all her Grandchildren and Great-grandchildren. Loved Sister of Joan. Family and Friends are invited to attend a Service of Prayers for Fay, to be held at Infant Saviour Catholic Church, Park Avenue, Burleigh Heads, on Thursday, 3rd February, 2011, at 2 p.m.

The memories I will keep of my "Tyrril" Grandparents are (Grandpa passed away in 1997):

Eating boxes of Smarties sitting on the back stairs in Sydney Street.

Washing the Smarties down with a Orange Popper!

And watching Singing in The Rain - everytime we visited!

Grandma Fay always had the best painted toe nails as well - always coloured and shiny!

Its funny the things you remember - certain smells, tastes and sounds.

RIP Grandma xoxo
