    I loved Christine dearly and will miss her immensely. She was a true friend, who was always honest, engaging, thoughtful, and warm. Christine had a wonderful sense of humour and definitely knew how to tell a good story. We shared much over the past 43 years of friendship and I will always cherish our times together. My deepest sympathy to Christine’s beloved family – Stefan, James, Eleanor, Oliver and Nicholas – who meant the world to her.

    I’m so very sorry for your loss. Grief is a universal language that each person speaks but must experience on their own. That said, I have been there and am here for you now.
    Our deepest condolences xx

    Words can’t make this sad time any easier, but maybe it will help, just a little to know that our thoughts are with you.

    With sympathy,

    I am so grateful to have shared such a long friendship with Christine. I have so many treasured memories from our late teen years in our university years to young adulthood, to being wedding belles and to becoming new mums.

    We shared the joys of family, of our careers and travel. Christine inspired joy and adventure and to embrace every phase of life.

    I am honoured to have had the privilege of Christine as a best friend.

    With much love always and my deepest sympathies Stefan, James, Eleanor, Oliver and Nicholas. Christine remains ever in our hearts. xx

    We have treasured memories of Christine, a much admired, and loved older cousin (and babysitter), and Godmother to Gen. Christine  was so fun to be around and our lives were enriched by her warmth and kindness. Our condolences to the Danek and Leask families.

    Although I did not know Christine our daughter was born one day before Christine. Her mother Joan & I spent time together in hospital. We had already known each other well from before 1950 as I was best friends with Colleen, Joan’s sister who was one of our bridesmaids.
    We pass on our sympathy to all members of the Danek, Leask & Fuller families.
    I have lovely memories of Joan’s parents and her sisters Colleen & Pat.

    What a beautiful celebration of a wonderful life, over too soon. Christine was a valued colleague and beautiful friend. She had a remarkable knack of being right there when a listening ear was needed. I am thankful for having met Christine and having had her lovely smile and generosity of spirit in my life. Wishing all of her family, love and strength. X

    Thankyou for sharing the celebration of Christine’s life. Our thoughts are with the Danek and Leask families at this time. The Leasks and the Coppocks grew up together back in Ballarat and the memories will never be forgotten.
    I remember the great times over 50 years ago, that we spent either at Inkerman or Queen Victoria streets. The dress ups, playing in the loft above the garage and the school days. While each of our family members moved in different directions since those early days, there was always one constant between our late mums, Joan and Marg. They were Besties! When Joan passed away Christine would take time to ring and visit our mum often. Mum loved those visits.
    May you rest peacefully Christine. Deepest sympathy to both families.
    On behalf of the Coppock family.

    I was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Christine. We worked together many years ago at the Department of Veteran’s Affairs at the Repat in Heidelberg. She was, as many have said, organised vivacious funny and warm. As a colleague she was the best. As a boss she was always fair and compassionate. She loved life but more importantly loved Stefan and the potential of their future together. We both left the DVA at around the same time but I have never forgotten the wonderful person I worked with or the laugh that was always so genuine. I’m pleased she got to live the life that she deserved. The world has lost a truly great human being, a role model, a friend. Thanks for all the laughs and the wonderful memories Christine. My deepest sympathies to Stefan and their beautiful children
