Toowoomba gardening community mourns Mavis Mundey

FAMILY, friends and the Toowoomba gardening community are in mourning after well-known gardener Mavis Mundey died today, aged 92.   

Mrs Mundey and her husband Ben were long-time members of the Toowoomba community and were best known for their award winning gardens.  

Their rock garden still goes on show each year and was featured on Burke's Backyard in about 1998.  

Mrs Mundey was the eldest daughter of Percy Charles Harrold and Elsie Catherine Elizabeth Wecker.   She was the third of 10 children and her death follows the passing of her brother Mervyn last month.   

Her family is from Toowoomba and while her two older brothers both married Humphrey sisters, Mrs Mundey and her next sister Marie, both married Mundey brothers.  

The funeral will be held on Tuesday, May 17 at 12.30pm at Burstows Chapel at 1020 Ruthven St, Kearneys Spring, Toowoomba.
