Deepest sympathy to Mrs Bink's family. I had the pleasure of doing her hair for many years, 9 o'clock ever Monday morning. She always arrived immaculately dressed with a beautiful smile on her face. A truely inspirational lady, who was very modern in her thinking, kind hearted with a wonderful sense of humour. RIP Mrs Binks from Dee

I met Mary through her work with Gran's Van in Devonport. She was a true inspiration for anyone who wants to make change in the world. Think Global, act local could have been invented by her! Vale Mary Binks

My deepest sympathy to you Mary, and to Dean as well as your beautiful children Pat, Belle and Harry. I know how much you all loved and cherished your Mum/MIL/Grandmother and she would have felt that love right up to the end. Much love from friend Erin

In memory of my friend Mary Binks

Mary was such a special and unique woman. A privilege to know Mary and have her as a friend. Mary made such a difference. Her caring touched so many lives. I will miss her, her voice, her mannerisms, her spirit and her intense interest in the world, her community and her family and friends. My deepest sympathy to her family and close friends at this time.
Thanks for your friendship and support Mary. RIP
