Frances Tobin Funerals by Women - Celebrating our Local Community
Frances Tobin Funerals proudly support community events, churches and community groups in our local area. Through sponsorships and events we strengthen our community ties and remain an active part of our community in Brighton and surrounding suburbs.
Star of the Sea College
Frances Tobin Funerals Branch Manager Frances Tobin is President of the Past Students’ Association (PSA) at Star of the Sea College, Gardenvale. Frances has been involved on the Committee of the PSA for around 15 years and took on the role as President in February 2014.
The PSA holds two special functions each year called “Star Women Speak” where they invite a former Star student to return to the College to share their life’s journey. This has included people as accomplished author Maureen McCarthy, film maker Genevieve Bailey, barrister & reality TV star Gina Liano, model & television presenter Nicky Buckley as well as a panel of women working in the field of science. These events have been very successful and Frances acts as MC for these events as well as contributing raffle items for the event.
Tobin Brothers involvement with the College also extends to looking after the funerals of the Presentation Sisters and many members of the Star Community due to the reputation Frances has within the Association. The community turn to Frances and Tobin Brothers Funerals for support and guidance in their time of need.
Star of the Sea Chapel
Frances Tobin Funerals has also contributed to an appeal to raise funds for the refurbishment of the Star of the Sea Chapel where our Company name has been added to the Donor Board and to establish the Garden of Reflection where our contribution has been recognised on a plaque in the Garden. Frances had the honour of opening the Garden in October 2014.
Star of the Sea Remembrance Mass
On Sunday November 8th 2015 at 9:30am, Star of the Sea College is holding an Inaugural Mass of Remembrance in the College Chapel followed by morning tea. This Mass will commemorate those members of the Star Community who have died. Frances Tobin will be involved in presenting a reading at the Mass and Frances Tobin Funerals will support this Mass by printing the service booklets.

When friends or family are unable to attend a funeral service because they live in a nursing home,interstate or overseas or when they may have commitments that can not be changed, a funeral webcast is a logical alternative. Webcasting a funeral enables absent mourners the opportunity to view and hear the funeral live from anywhere in the world for far less than the cost of travelling to the service.
To Access a Webcast
To access a webcast or to view a service that has already been webcast enter the deceased’s surname into the Funeral Service Search box to the right of the screen.
