JACKIE FRANK’S FULL TRIBUTE TO HER MOTHER LILLIAN 

Last night we lost the heart and soul of our family. 

She lived life to the max, without any regrets and was forever grateful. 

She saw things through rose colored glasses. No matter what adversity she had to face, and there were many, she saw the good in everyone and everything. 

Not many of you will know she was born in Burma, in 1930, fled to India during the war before being sent to her Aunt in the UK finally to make Australia her home. 

Forever trying to make a difference in the world. She used her flamboyant personality and social standing for good, raising millions and millions for charity. 

She had a very public life and I was often asked what’s it like growing up with Lillian Frank as your mum? My answer, to us she was mum, to my kids nani and the most spectacular selfless human being in the world with the biggest heart. 

We ❤️ you but a piece of our hearts will be broken forever.
