The warmest of wishes and the deepest condolences to the Hayden family, with the loss of Thelma.
My memories are of a gentle and kind person who welcomed us to the Piangil area back in the 1980s as we ventured down the track to get our bucket of milk! This was further reinforced when I worked for the family which I found to be a rich learning experience. I am sitting here today with those wonderful memories of those times.
My Dad, Gordon, also wishes to send his kindest regards at such a time.
All the very best to all of you

Dear Rodney, Maxine and all of the Hayden family
Our sympathies are with you in this difficult time, the Holt (NSW) family extend our heartfelt condolences to you all, in the loss of Thelma.
For Marilyn & I we remember the trips to Swan Hill to visit Gran Holt, our uncles, aunts and cousins, and the associated visits to the Hayden farm at Piangil where we treasured our catch ups with Don and Thelma, for the love and good times we shared. Also when the Haydens’ came to visit dad, mum and I in NSW and Marilyn on her farm at Yass many years ago.
Thelma was the family stalwart that made the Hayden children the fine adults they are today and the loving aunt to Marilyn and Ian, and loving sister to our dad.
May she rest in peace and the love we have for her.
With our love, Ian & Leone, Marilyn & Fiona
