  1. To Pete and all his family,
    “As long as the sun shines, the wind blows and the rain falls your mum will forever be beside you….”
    Sending condolences, such a lovely service.

  2. Our love and support to all the Norbury family. Marion was indeed a special person and will live on in the way she has influenced all her own children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

  3. It has been an honour to be able to watch the funeral, and hear Peter, Kate and Carly speak. Kate has regaled us for as long as we have known her with stories about Marion and the Norbury family. What a wonderful woman. Thinking of you all this time. Ros xx

  4. Marion was always such a caring and happy person. It was a pleasure to work with her in Education at Treasury Place. Nothing was ever too much trouble for her.

  5. Lovely service – what a fascinating life well remembered. Love and condolences to all. Jenny and Katrina Blake

  6. I knew Marion through work at the Education Department from the mid-90s through to my retirement in 2012. Although I didn’t work directly with her, like may others who sought her advice or assistance, I found her to be a kind, caring and very professional person.
    And I often felt there was something special in Marion’s life and past that we were not privy to. This service confirms what I felt. She was a special and wonderful person. It’s been a privilege to be able to view this service celebrating her life.

  7. My sister-in-law and friend – Marion you came into my life when I met Kevin. You always meant the world to me. You were always there to support me with Lisa and Scott even though you had your own family – you made time. Marion we shared a life long friendship and I will always love and admire you. In your brother’s eyes you were perfect and I know he will be waiting for you. Love Beverley

  8. You were my everything. My keeper of secrets, my safe harbour and honest advisor. You were the first person I looked for in times of challenge and success. Your were a fine balance of loving, strong, resilient, intelligent, family historian, funny, informed and opinionated. Above all you were authentic and took everything life had to offer. How many times did you say “You can take the girl out of Collingwood but you cannot take the Collingwood out of the girl”. You were a woman ahead of your time. But your most precious gift to me was your commitment and love of family. A valued lesson that will continue to be passed on and enjoyed by many generations. There was nothing to compare to a Norbury Christmas. All my love to my cousins; Gary and Heather, Kim and Syd, Peter, Chris and Deb, Lizzie, Kate and Mike, Richard and their families. Lisa xx

  9. My dear friend Marion … we’ve been friends since I arrived in Australia in 1974 to teach at Monash Uni. You were a mature-age student just a couple of years older than myself, and you invited me to spend x-mas at your home and introduced me to your big brood of children. Over the years, we’ve talked about feminism and we’ve done women’s crafts together. You will live on in my Nightingale Street house (bought on auction by your husband Bruce) because I have your art work everywhere: decoupage boxes and embroidered paintings, even a hand-painted T-shirt. The Guardian Angel you made for me is only 7.5 cm by 11.5 cm but involves a multitude of old English art work that you were learning at the time. You never stopped learning, with your head and with your hands. I never gave my angel a name but now she has a name and it’s Marion. Love from Ulla.
