MARIA SMIDDY - A SPECIAL SERVICE
It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I acknowledge the passing of our beloved matriarch, Maria Smiddy.
Maria's battle with an aggressive cancer, her unflinching courage, character, beautiful smile and selfless nature during this time, will strengthen our resolve to continue to fund critical cancer research and patient care. We'll continue to do this in the name of Maria's son, Adam, and all our loved ones lost to, or affected by cancer.
A private funeral was held for Maria in New Zealand and her ashes are being brought back to Australia to be placed next to her son Adam at Home Hill cemetery.
The Smiddy family, including Maria’s husband David and son Paul, invite you to a special service to celebrate Maria’s life:
Friday 12 June at 1.30pm
Brisbane City Hall
King George Square
As a valued member of the Smiling for Smiddy community we welcome your attendance to pay your respects and celebrate the life of this incredible woman we were all blessed to know.
No RSVP is necessary but should you have any questions about the service please contact the Smiling for Smiddy team on 07 3163 8000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Maria is greatly loved and will be sorely missed but not forgotten. Friday's service is an opportunity for us all to support David and Paul, and their entire family, and to celebrate the impact Maria had on our lives.
I truly hope to see you this Friday.
