In loving memory of Mary 'May' STIELOW who sadly passed away on 5th August 2020.

Born in Glasgow in 1932 to her loving parents George and Janet 'Jenny' Kerr; Mary grew up surrounded by her brothers George and David; Grandparents; Uncles; Aunts and Cousins in a street she said was like a village. This upbringing fostered a love for family, friends and community which was the guiding light of Mary's life. Moving to Australia with her children Hamish and Janet, Mary's love of family and friends flourished.

To the many special people in Mary's life - she loved you all dearly and we thank you for your support.

A beautiful lady – died peacefully at home surrounded by the love of her family and friends.

We can no longer give mum a hug or see her with our eyes but will always feel her in our hearts.
Janet and Greg.

You will always be with us mum, the reminders are all around us.
Hamish and Lyn.

Thank you for the wonderful memories which will forever flourish and can be cherished in our hearts.
Dani and Graham.

Memorial donations to the RSPCA would be appreciated by May.

Private cremation.

Dear May. Having you as such a big part of my life has been a joy and a privilege. I thank you so much for everything you have contributed to my life, especially the gift of being welcomed into your family. Your dignity, intelligence, empathy, sense of humour, and our shared love of animals, has given me so many wonderful memories which I will cherish. I love you dearly.

Missing my lovely neighbour who was like family. I will miss her accent, her talk of her beloved corgis that I met and her last family member that gave her the spark she lost when Bryn passed away. A special lady and friend but most of all a wonderful mother. My heartfelt thoughts are with her beloved Janet and Greg and Hamish and Lyn. ..
