Not sure what to say?

Miss Cranage taught me piano when I was at high school, giving me private lessons at no charge. It was incredibly generous of her and opened up a whole world of music to me. She took me in for piano exams and gave me copies of the music I would need. She also took me to Brunswick Square car park to practise driving when I was getting ready to go for my licence! I'm really sad to learn that she has died.

Sending deepest condolences to family and friends of Kathleen.

I knew Kathleen through music, she often supported me and Schizy Inc with her accordian playing and her equally amazing culinery skills.

Kathleen was a talented pianist, extremely intellectual and very tenacious with a wicked sense of humour.

Vale Kathleen.

Today at Malahang Gestival in West HEIDELBERG, I remembered Kathleen, bringing joy with her accordion. She gave so much. RIP Kathleen

I forgot to say that Kathleen was an excellent baker who generously plied me with her delicious home-made goodies. I lived near her in Heidelberg but I didn't see her much after she became ill in recent years.

Sad to hear of Kathleen's passing. She was a brilliant, very talented woman.


We would like to extend our deepest condolences to the Cranage family on the recent loss of their sister, Kathleen. We've known Kathleen for many years, in fact, she regularly attended parties at our home. She was an exceptional musician, playing the piano at our gatherings, deftly blending with the other musicians, or playing some of her favourites solo. The live music scene of Melbourne has truly lost not only a talented musician, but a beautiful soul. We will miss her.
Tom and Janette...

I have fond memories of the courage and loyalty of the Cranage family from Edenhope days. Kathleen was a highly intelligent, fun-loving, athletic pupil with an avid thirst for knowledge and a strong passion for social justice and a better world for the underprivileged. I am so sorry I cannot attend her funeral today as I will be at another burial. I extend my deepest sympathy to her family.

She was a friend of mind.
