As she had done almost every day for the last 12 months, Vicki Rolland live streamed the 8am mass at the Catholic Church in Cronulla on Tuesday morning this week and then had coffee with friends at Anna's Around the Corner.
Tragically, the 59-year-old Cronulla resident, who was devoted to her church and charity work as president of the local branch of the St Vincent de Paul Society, did not return home.
Ms Rolland collapsed on the Cronulla train station platform about 10am on her way to an appointment and, despite the efforts of paramedics who arrived within minutes and worked on her for a considerable time, could not be revived.
The Last Rites were administered by the Parish Priest of St Aloysius, Father James McCarthy, who hurried to the scene.
Ms Rolland, a former bank manager since retired, took on a range of volunteer roles and was known to many in the local community.
At the 8am mass on Wednesday morning, Fr McCarthy said Ms Rolland had been "a big part of this parish for many, many decades" and was "one of its big personalities".
"I have heard from dozens of people in not even 24 hours of the way Vicki had touched their lives," he said.
"She wasn't married, she didn't have any children of her own, but she had many, many spiritual children.
"Vicki was welcoming, she wanted the best for young people, for children."
Fr McCarthy said many people had been able to participate in mass thanks to her dedication.
A small group of parishioners, including Ms Rolland, took on the responsibility of live streaming masses when COVID-19 restrictions were placed on church attendance.
The quality and dependability of the service continues to attract hundreds of viewers, including many from other parts of Australia and overseas.
Comments the St Aloysius parish Facebook page, where the live streamed masses are viewed, included:
Ms Rolland will be farewelled at a mass - which will be live streamed - at St Aloysius Church at 10.30am on Wednesday June 30.
