Marie's family invites you to leave tributes and share memories below.



  1. Many wonderful memories of Marie & Derek at Moresby Avenue Bulleen with Colin & Marjorie Heggen.
    Lots of shared laughs!

    Marie was a special long term friend to the Heggen family.
    Marjorie & Marie enjoyed many years of friendship through the Deepdene Coffee group raising funds for the Ryder-Cheshire Foundation.
    With special wishes & thoughts to the extended family.
    With love Colin, Catherine & Louise Heggen

  2. We are grateful that Auntie Marie passed so peacefully and that most of the family could be around her. You are such a loving family and although 95 years is significant longevity, we appreciate how beloved your Mom was to you and how greatly you will miss her. Marie’s was a life very well lived; and she leaves a legacy of role modelling for all of us of what it means to live one’s values.
    She demonstrated such goodness, kindness, and interest and caring for others throughout her life. Although we had the pleasure of meeting in person with her unfortunately only twice in her life, she was always great about staying in touch by phone/mail. She was always interested in what the Canadian nieces and families were up to and how we were doing. This was always noticed and appreciated. Our Dad—Paddy MacCarthy– and she were close siblings. Dad would speak of Marie often and held her in such high regard, as we all did/do. We will remember her warmly and with great affection; may Marie rest in peace.
    With heartfelt condolences and comforting thoughts to you all at this very sad time,
    Patricia, Steve, Brendan and Evan Hunt
    West Vancouver, BC, Canada

  3. When I think of Marie I think of her love for family at home in Australia, Ireland , England and Canada I stayed with Derek and Marie many years ago, and what a wonderful welcome we received. I always looked forward to receiving Marie’s letter at Christmas with all her news about family everywhere. She traveled from a young age and enjoyed life in far away places , A strong Lady and she will be missed. May she rest in peace. My thoughts are with her family as they celebrate a life well lived.

  4. Thank you for sharing your mother’s funeral with the family in Canada. The priest commented how our Auntie Marie loved funerals and I’m sure she would have surely enjoyed her own. That she wasn’t there was the only truly sad part; rather it was a celebration of her remarkable life by her adoring family. Even the priest seemed to be in awe of what a wonderful, kind person she was.

    Although I only met my Auntie Marie and Uncle Derek decades ago during their visit to Canada we have kept in touch over the years, mainly through her legendary Christmas letters, where she would bring her extended family up to date with the news from her family in Australia and all the rest of us who had been in touch with her during the year. Her passing is truly the end of an era, the last survivor of the family who lived in the Listowel Bungalow. Shel lives on in the hearts of her extended family, in Australia and scattered around the world.
