In loving memory of Lorna Gaynor "Gaye" Arnolda who sadly passed away on 27th October 2016
ARNOLDA, Lorna Gaynor “Gaye” (nee Cameron) 23/12/1941 – 27/10/2016

Late of McDowall and formerly of New Zealand and Melbourne passed away peacefully on Thursday 27th October 2016 at the tender age of just 74 years.

Gaye leaves behind her loving husband and soulmate Dennis and devoted children Stuart, Robert and their respective partners Karen and Brooke, and her siblings Gavin (NZ), Brian (GC), Pam (NZ) and Jenny (NZ). Gaye has now re-joined her other son Damien who passed before her.

Gaye or Grandma as she is better known will also be sadly missed by her adoring grandchildren Zac and Lily who will always remember her for the loving and caring relationship they each shared with her, a relationship that can only be shared between a grandparent and grandchild.

At this time Gaye’s family, would like to thank the Doctors, Nurses and support staff of the Wesley Hospital, The Prince Charles Hospital and Karuna Hospice Services for the love, care and attention that they showed to make her final days as peaceful as possible.

Gaye’s family invite all of her relatives and friends to attend her celebration of life service that will be held in the chapel of the Pinnaroo Crematorium within the grounds of the Pinnaroo Cemetery 294 Graham Road, Bridgeman Downs, on Friday 4th November 2016. The ceremony will commence at 2:00 PM

No Flowers please – in lieu of flowers Gaye wished that you make a donation to The Karuna Hospice Services in her name if you so choose.

Dear Dennis, we are very sad to hear of Gayes passing. Please accept our sincere condolences to you and your family. Sharlene and I were hoping to attend Gayes funeral to represent the Kellar Family but unfortunately a young cousin of ours passed away a couple of days ago and his funeral is being held tomorrow as well. Our thoughts will be with you at this sad time. Sonia and Ernie

We will remember how right up to nearly the end, Gaye was able to say hello and keep in touch by phone and email with Dennis' support. Testament to how Gaye was in all the time we have known her.
Supportive and so kind to Estella. Friendly and keen to show the best of Australian food, fun and family life to Neela and Anna on visits to Brisbane. A great walking companion on Hampstead Heath in London and best of all, able to conjure up all the whales and dolphins in the surrounding sea on our Whalewatching boat trip last year. We had only good times. Thank you.
Condolences and sympathy to both families,
Estella Guter and Neela and Anna Dolezal.

Dear Gaye, Thank you for being you. A sister I will always treasure. Even when you were very ill, you always found the time to ring and ask how I was. The one comfort I have now is to know that you are no longer in pain. To Dennis, Stuart, Robert and Families our love and thoughts are with you all. Rest in Peace Gaye
Love from Brian and Karen

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay a while, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never ever the same.

Gaye was a delight to be around with her sunny disposition and positive outlook in spite of the trials she was experiencing. Gaye gave us an inspirational insight into coping with difficult times. We will miss her smile and easy going banter. Our thoughts and sympathies go out to Dennis and the family.

We will miss Gaye's loving nature and dazzling smile.
We will also miss our telephone conversations, as Lee and Colleen wrote, Gaye was always more concerned about others and faced all her numerous and harrowing problems with such grace.
She was the bravest person we have ever met.
We are so glad we flew up to see Gaye and Dennis late July. Even though she was in hospital then,
she was so cheerful and welcoming.
Our deepest sympathy to Dennis, Stuart and Karen, Robert and Brooke and dear Zac and Lily who we know Gaye doted on. Always talking about them and showing photos of them when we did see Gaye.
Lots of love from Val and Bob Wood xx

The passing of a gracious and warm hearted person such as Gaye will be difficult for all that knew her and loved her. Always cheerful and smiling during her difficulties caring more about others. We will both really miss her and Colleen especially who had found a special travel friend never to be replaced. Our deepest condolences to Dennis and family. Lee and Colleen Carter

  • The passing of a sister is extremely hard, especially someone like Gaye, whose first thoughts were always for others, no matter how sick she was, she always worried about others. Always putting on a brave face when asked how she was, and saying she was okay. Be at peace dear Gaye. Our thoughts go out to Dennis, Stuart and Karen, Rob and Brooke and the two grandchildren Zac and Lily
