Ingleburn RSL Sub Branch sends our deepest condolences to Daphne's wonderful daughter Michelle you have done a wonderful caring job
April 14, 2019
It is with the saddest of hearts that we would like to share the news that our most beloved mum and nanna, Mrs Daphne Dunne, passed away peacefully yesterday morning. She could not have bought more joy to our lives, despite all the hardship she endured during her lifetime. In her most recent years, it has been our absolute honour and pleasure to see her bring so much joy to people from all walks of life and from all countries of the world. Her engagement at the Invictus Games and her most special meetings with HRH Prince Harry and his new wife Meghan, has brought her so much joy, as they have done to others who watched on. Daphne loved to share her happiness and stories with all the wonderful people she met. The simple act of stopping Daphne in the street and holding her hand, meant more to Daphne than anyone could ever imagine. She just loved people and she loved the now. The loss of her first husband Lt. Albert Chowne, who won the Victoria Cross and Military Medal after just a year of marriage in 1945, has stayed with Daphne in the most hauntingly beautiful way. She has never lost her love for Albert and has honoured his service to country, both as a widow and as a member of the Australian Woman's Army herself. Her contribution at ceremonies throughout Sydney, her attendance at the Cenotaph and her marching at ANZAC day meant a lot to her as she never wanted Albert's memory to be forgotten. ANZAC day meant the world to Daphne and she saw it as a real privilege to represent the women of the Australian Army and her husbands Lt. Albert Chowne and John Patrick Dunne, my father. It is fitting that she past away on the first of April as it is a month of renewal, remembrance and now reunification with her loved ones who have past before her. She will missed by so many but none more than her daughter, grandchildren, close friends and special little dog, Meeko. We love you Daphne, forever and always.
