My dad called her ‘Mrs Mac’ but … I called for Elma, and I called on her a lot, as a child I was the kid from next door that would turn up at her door with my towel and pj’s ready for a bath in her bath, or for sympathy when I’d got in trouble! As the years went on I got older but her door was one I still knocked on. At McArthur Street I might of occasionally got in trouble for swinging on that bar that ran along the verandah! No matter how old I got she was always ready with a hug and I loved our very long chats where we would cover every topic under the sun and some more. It was a privilege to have known Elma. She was exactly what a friend should be … the type that became family. Forever grateful for her friendship. Rest In Peace, with our love always. Nicole, Mackenzie and Georgie
Rest In Peace Elma. We are so fortunate to have had you in our lives. Mum and Dad chose well by living next door to you and Les in Camperdown. You gave the best hugs and never forgot our birthdays (or our kids)-always so thoughtful. I remember the last time we saw you at Sunnyside – you were so happy to have us visit and gave us extra big hugs. Thank you for your love and kindness always xxx Jo, Mark, Hayden and Isobel.

A proud and loving tribute to Elma with an E. Memories of McKinnon St in the sixties when the McDonald family welcomed me into their home and showed me the fun a larger family of six kids could be. I watched the story of the life of Elma with many tears, many memories and with accolades to her loving family. Vale Elma, Mrs.Mac. Hersh/ Glenda Hirth
