  1. This is such a lovely tribute to gorgeous, generous, gentle Liz. What a wonderful life she led and what a bright spark she was. I have never met Tricia but I so enjoyed hearing her stories of their days together. Piers’ research and anecdotes painted the perfect picture of a full and interesting life. She was a beautiful person inside and out and her spirit of gentleness and generosity lives on in all of her children. Sending you masses of love and hugs during the days to come.

  2. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful service to a wonderful lady. Liz and my mother Jane Dyson (née Tinsley & once Gilder) were skiing buddies at AWSC and I remember Liz well as being a woman with grace and class. May she rest in peace. Many kind regards and sympathy for your family’s loss, Sarah Gilder

  3. What a lovely, lovely service. While I was watching the service (the day after) it started snowing at the beginning and ended when I finished, a fitting tribute xx

  4. What a beautiful service for a beautiful woman, with such a generous and warm spirit, as articulated so well by the eulogies. Thanks so much for sharing this online so we could also pay tribute to Liz – she’s certainly an inspiration for living life well and to the fullest. Thinking of you all and sending much love, Libba Granger

  5. Darlings Cara, Sophs, Piers and Feurdie Bird, thank you for sharing this beautiful service with us all. What a life darling Lizzie had – your research was very impressive Piers! We all LOVED and adored your darling Mother and I am just so grateful you could all have that wonderful Christmas at Toolang with her. And for Lizzie to be surrounded by those she loved most. All my love from london. emma xxx

  6. Was able to be with you and remember Liz though in England. What amazing modern technology.A lovely service and learnt so much more about her.She was a truly incredible lady.
    Love from the Scottish relatives Alex

  7. My heartfelt condolences at the loss of your beautiful mother Elizabeth. I admire the life that your mother lived, and I can only hope that I have as positive impact on the lives of others that she did. I am blessed to have known your mother. x

  8. My wife Pauline Markwell and I were most impressed with the style and grace of the service. Might there be an electronic version of the service that could be shared?

    We were absolutely delighted to see Tricia so bright, well and informative about intimate family relationships that we had no previous knowledge!

    I must also thank Piers for informing me about my sister Marsha. I never recalled or perhaps never knew that Marsha had travelled with the twins to the 1956 Winter Olympics in Cortina. I had been in the 1955 training squad and thought that I may have also been there also but just missed out. 1952 Olympian Bob Arnott was there as a FIS official with Simone who I thank for keeping me informed about the service.

  9. Jill and Tony Mirams send their deepest sympathy to Tric, Cara, Sophie Piers and Fleur.
    We have always enjoyed Liz’s bright company over many years, and today were so pleased to be part of the fine memorial service on line. Liz will be sadly missed by all her family and friends.

  10. We are so grateful to have been able to share in today’s celebration of Liz. She was fearless and fun and had the most infectious joy for life. We feel lucky to have had her to ourselves for a stay in Taos, NM where she astounded the locals with her incredible skiing at almost 70, and lived each day with such enthusiasm and curiosity, it was hard not to be energised in her presence. We will cherish our memories of our time with her. Our love and condolences to her dear family and friends.
    Love, Mike & Foxy Wenzel

  11. It was a beautiful service and I was so pleased to be able to be with you all to say a final goodbye to Liz.
    It brought back so many memories of a dear friend of over nearly 70 years. With my love to all the family. Simone Arnott

  12. A beautiful service.

    Sending thoughts to Fleur and family, as we remember beautiful Liz, her life full of interesting experiences, her passion for skiing, her cheeky spirit, kindness and curiosity.

  13. What an amazing life & beautiful memories told by Tricia & Piers. I will forever remember Granny Liz’s stories of adventure & never forget her endless support & help when I was left in charge of India, Angus & Emma!! Sending loads of love xxxxx

  14. Thank you for enabling us to share in this beautiful celebration of a life so well and fully lived. Much love. Xxx

  15. A beautiful lady, Mother and adventurer.
    I met Mrs Cunningham via her children when they were young adults. Upon meeting Liz it was very evident where the children had learnt their love of life, travel, skiing and general enthusiasm. Mrs Cunningham was ageless and joined in our frivolity.
    We would endlessly encourage her to tell interesting tales of travel and early skiing throughout the globe. She was so interesting and interested.
    Condolences to the Cunningham family but rest assured you have great genes. May Liz observe our adventures from above x

  16. Dear Fleur, Sophie, Cara and Piers,
    I’m heartbroken for you all. Lizzie was wonderful fun and I have so many fond memories. Thinking of you all and sending so much love and hugs. George ❤️❌⭕️❤️

  17. My condolences for Tricia, who with Liz, I shared many happy memories. We first met in 1953 as members of the Melbourne University Ski Club and a number of Inter-varsity ski competitions. We kept in touch over the years directly and through our many mutual friends and relations. So sorry to have missed meeting Liz when she last visited Sydney last year, and not to learn of her quite recent illness until today from Simone Arnott. I have always appreciated the great Melbourne hospitality and friendship from all the Mildred family, their parents, the twins and brother Donald who also shared my fun as a pilot.

  18. Such a gracious lady, beautiful Mum and adventurer.
    I met Mrs Cunningham when her children were young Adults and she also participated in our frivolity. Liz exuded youth and vitality and these genes will live on.
    We would encourage her stories about skiing and travel around the globe and it brought us endless joy.
    Mrs Cunningham was joy.
    May you smile over us and watch our adventures
    Sympathy to the family x

  19. We are thinking of you all fleur. Our love and sympathy to you and all your family. Much love Carolyn and John vile ❤️

  20. Sending all our love and best wishes for a life well lived. Thinking of your family at this time. Much love Yasmin and Nicholas Allen xxxx

  21. What a wonder. What a life. The grandest of adventures. So much fun, and inspiration. We loved every moment in your company Liz. I’m sure you’re not aware of just how many people you touched and how adored you were. And so brave until the last. Thank you for being the mum of our best friend Fleur (and Cara, Sophie and Piers). Thank you for years of love and laughter. GOD SPEED. All our love to your family and friends who will be carrying you with them always, Spook and Jamie Darling xxxx
