ANTOINETTE AOUEISS – 

On July 1st 2020, we said a peaceful farewell to the matriarch of our family, Antoinette Aoueiss. She was surrounded with love and respect throughout her life and at her passing, both beside her and from afar. Generous to a fault, forever the pinnacle of fashion and the confidante of so many. There was no one quite like our Mum, our Nana and our Great grandma. You have left a huge void in all of our lives.

Rest in Peace

A funeral service to honour the life of Antoinette will be held on Monday 13th July 2020 at 11.15am.
