Fond memories of my 1st Form teacher at Lalor High School in 1965. A gentle and extremely patient lady, I have often thought of her over the years with gratitude for the quiet and dignified way in which she managed a classroom. Always even tempered and unflustered, even though I may not have always paid attention in class .. (sorry about that) … she was always kind to me. Rest well Mrs Christeson , you made a difference to many lives and will be well remembered always. Thank you for teaching me, Susan Hamilton

Love The Colosimo family from st Brigid parish . ❤️
As young parishioners a long time ago now we have many fond memories of Mass at St Luke’s with Mrs Christeson playing the organ and leading us all in singing the hymns of the day. She was always present and present for all. Her Eucharistic celebration today was a beautiful tribute to a fine and very talented lady,
May her dear soul Rest in Peace.

A beautiful and fitting spiritual celebration of a life well lived. May Beryl rest in peace, reunited with God and loved ones gone before, safe in the knowledge that she was deeply loved and will always be remembered.
Our thoughts go out to you during this difficult time. Your mum was a warm, caring and thoughtful lady who gave so much of herself as a mother,wife,sister and friend. She was very much a giving and welcoming lady who excelled in her profession as a teacher and as an accomplished pianist and organ player with the church for so many years.
Mum (Your Aunty Joan) will have welcomed Aunty Beryl with open arms in the afterlife.

Dear Beryl family. I have just watched the beautiful celebration of Beryl’s life. I met Beryl twenty three years ago at St. Brigid’s parish, taking over from her as parish secretary. I have fond memories of a lovely gentle person. My thoughts and prayers are with her, may our loving God welcome her into his heavenly home and grant her eternal rest. Please accept my sincere condolences. Giovanna Bellissimo.RIP.
