Walla said a final, albeit unusual, goodbye to its oldest citizen last week.
Gloria Feuerherdt died on Sunday, May 3, less than two weeks after celebrating her 97th birthday.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions on the amount of people who can attend funerals, Mrs Feuerherdt was farewelled with a small service and burial and one last ride down the main street.
Community members lined the street, all while social distancing, to say goodbye to the much-loved Walla local.
The service was also filmed and uploaded to YouTube for those who could not make it.
Walla Lutheran Parish pastor Dan Mueller read a reflection of Mrs Feuerherdt's life, the majority of which was spent in the rural Riverina town.
"Gloria May Feuerherdt, nee Wenke, was born at Meramie Private Hospital Albury on 22nd of April 1923," he said.
"Gloria grew up on the family farm Fernsight, she attended Burrumbuttock North Public School for one year in 1930, then Walla Walla Public School from 1931.
"On 30th September 1942, Gloria married Eric Stanley Feuerherdt at Zion Lutheran Church Walla Walla - the marriage was blessed with three children, Neville, Helen and Maxine."
Mrs Feuerherdt was an active member of multiple community groups including the Walla Girl Guides, Walla Red Cross where she remained a member for more than 75 years, she was the last original member of the Walla Woman's Bowling Club, the Ladies Fellowship, the Senior Citizens and the Historical Society.
She has 11 grandchildren, 30 great-grandchildren and 21 great-great-grandchildren and still held her drivers licence.
"Gloria peacefully went into the arms of God to be reunited with her husband Eric," pastor Mueller said.
