Passing of Dianne Goodwin Director TDFC

In May we lost our Director and my lovely wife to Cancer. It’s been a tough road to continue to get up and get going each day in Business.

In order to achieve this we must remember how we got started. Our business was here to help businesses grow and offer a service for free.

In weeks and days after the tragedy, generous community and clients made arrange of donations with cash, gifts and food to assist our family in our darkest hours.

I used such gifts to purchase her memorial cabinet, which is over 120 years old. I know she would have loved it. Also I have used the money, by putting it back into the community is requesting a plaque be constructed and placed in her final work place Canungra Family Practice.

She loved working there, and she loved all the community members from all around. My family wishes to make one final thank you to all clients, customers, patients, Friends and family for all their kind wishes and gifts.


I would like to give a big thank you to Ron Quickenden for the wood turning of the plaque. Also thanking his daughter for intricate design around the edges of the plaque. And I couldn’t for get John Ritchie, big thank you for organizing it all.

The plaque has a story behind it. Ron said he wanted to do the plaque in Jacaranda. He said he had a piece and searched high and low but could not find it. So they settled for some swamp wood. Both parties finished the turning and engraving, not liking the finished product. All of a sudden Ron, noticed right in front of him was the piece of Jacaranda he had been searching for. Not being religious, he believes that Dianne had something to do with it making its way to view.

If you ever drive out to the wonderful community of Canungra for lunch or a coffee, stop in at the Medical Practice over the road and see the plaque first hand.

Always loving Husband and Family.

Sid, Madison, Jason, Chantelle, and Eligh
