A beautiful service for a beautiful lady! Your mum has touched the lives of everyone (even neighbours). I haven’t and will not ever, meet someone as strong, sweet and independent as she was. I also know what it feels like. Its hard and devastating. But, things get better . Love and kisses to you all. In my heart forever. Love Tania, Darren, Pete, Nathan and Ashlee xoxo
Dearest cousins Marilena and Assunta.
My deepest respect to Zia Filomena who shall finally cherish peace and love with Zio Alberto.
The greatest Australian/Italian generation that worked,loved and ensured a safer future for us and our siblings.
Zia’s awe, radiance,personality with my mother was a match unsurpassed.
That distinct home garden of fruits & flowers so famous, I can truly say Zia Filomena is the genuine “Strawberry Fields Forever”
We all know the seven wonders of the world Zia…..you were always the eighth!
My unconditional love & gratitude with eternal peace.
Tony “Tunooch” Abbonizio.

We love her to bits and have great memories of her love, laughter, generosity of spirit and unique gardening style.
we are privileged to have had her as our neighbour.
Huge hugs the Boyle family
I feel privileged to have lived next door to Filomena for near 20 years. She always stop and say “hello” and want to know how you are, what you were doing.
My favourite memories I have of her: she’d be doing the gardening in almost any heat in summer time keeping her lawn pristine including constantly refusing (politely of course) for me to now her lawn when I was already mowing mum and dads.
She was thrilled when I introduced my kids to her.
To the family, Filomena was a beautiful person and a wonderful neighbour kind, generous and loving. I’m going to miss seeing her potter around in the garden and the surprise on her face when I’d visit my folks with her arms open expecting a big warm hug.
Sending you all light and love. May the love of your family and friends hold you during this time and always. May your memories of the beautiful time that you shared with your mamma and nonna bring you some peace and joy. Her beautiful legacy that she left with you, the love that she shared with you,will always be in your hearts.
Condolences to you Asunta Marilena and family may your beautiful mum now rest in peace. Love Sam Susie Deanna and James Favaloro xxx

Once upon a time an angel held my hand.
She wiped away my tears and helped me understand
Our time on Earth is brief; there are lessons to be learned.
Each precious day God gives us, another page is turned.
Every chapter full of memories, times of joy and tears,
Triumphs and defeats, through every passing year.
She loved us unconditionally, always by our side.
When no one else would listen, in her we could confide.
With gentle words of wisdom, she led us on our way,
Down the paths of righteousness if ever we did stray.
She saw the light in everyone and gave with no regrets,
Always from her heart, let’s not forget.
Angels come in many forms; for me it was my mother.
With love I cannot say in words there’ll never be another.
Every day I turn the page, in my heart will ever remain
Everything she taught me as I stroll down memory lane.
Thank you, God, for giving me the most priceless of all treasures.
Help my, Lord, to keep alive her memory here forever.
I pray that I can someday be everything she hoped I would,
That she’s smiling down from heaven knowing she did good.
As we gather here today, there’s no ending to her story.
Another chapter has begun, full of grace and glory.
God’s called her to his heavenly home, part of his great plan.
Although it may be hard, we all must understand.
Faith is what is hoped for, things we cannot see.
Heaven is promised to all of us if only we believe
DearAssunta, Marilena and families,
Our hearts are filled with sadness and tears, but our memories are filled with smiles and laughter of the good times we shared over the years.
With all our love, strength and support. Our thoughts are with you all,
Love Leo, Rose, Samuel, Nathan and Ilana xx
Our deepest condolences to you all.
May beautiful Filomena rest in peace.

Look up to the sky.
Now tell me what you see.
A cloud, the moon, possibly the sun.
Many answers there will be.
When I look up to the sky,
I’ll tell you what I see.
I see my mother,
And she’s looking back at me.
She tells me she didn’t want to leave us,
But it was time for her to depart.
It was the hardest thing she had to do,
And it’s breaking her heart.
She tells me we mustn’t be sad
Because finally she’s pain free.
She’s found her place in heaven
Underneath a blossom tree.
She’ll always be there to guide us
When we feel we’ve lost the way.
She’ll always be there to comfort us
And wipe those tears away.
She’ll always be there to share our joy
And laugh at the jokes we make.
In order to feel her presence,
Only a little imagination it’ll take.
She may be in the form of a butterfly
Or simply a floating feather
Or hovering over like a busy bee
Or simply part of the weather.
You’ve all come here to say your farewell,
But for me it’s not goodbye.
If I want to see her, all I have to do
Is look up to the sky.
Our deepest heartfelt condolences to our dear & special childhood friends, Marilena, Assunta & Families.
We’re all so very sad to hear about Beautiful Filomena. She was such a big part of our lives growing up in Christie Street & will always be remembered as the loving, funny & generous person she was.
Fondest memories will always hold a special in our hearts, especially her beautiful big smile. Rest In Peace Filomena.
