It's with deep sadness I have to notify people that on Sunday 24rd November 2013 at 10:15 pm New Zealand time she passed away.

She had suffered a heart attack two days earlier and was rushed to Timaru Hospital and though she looked to be recovering from the great work of the hospital staff she slipped into a coma and quietly passed away. Members of her family were with her at the time and they report that her passing was peaceful.

She is so very missed by her husband Brian, her brothers Bill, Cedric and John her sons Murray and Charles, her grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews cousins and many friends.

Mum was the most gentle person I have ever known whose love for all living beings stands as an inspiration for all.

So sorry to hear of your loss.
Though I didn't know your Mother personally, it was always refreshing and pleasant to read her posts and replies here on the forum. Her views were always interesting, informative and most compassionate.
I had seen an earlier note here regarding her passing, but thank you for putting this notice out to everyone again.
May she rest in complete peace and tranquility.
Cheers, Bob.
