We sadly lost our Dii in Rotorua, after a short illness.

Loving wife of the late Ken. Sister of Melva, Peter and Jan. Mother and Mother in law to Sara, John and Kris, and the late Kathy.

She battled courageously, but sadly it was a fight she could never win. Rest easy with Kat and Ken. Until we meet again.

  1. Somehow I missed this important date, but Dii, you are not forgotten by any means.I have lots of memories of you – you and I at Bell Gully, terrorising the newly qualified lawyers – we were the Mafia, you were the GodMother, I was Jellyboons, Wendy also had a role – not sure what her name was. Tony Ford and Bruce Palmer looked on but never told us off! Those days were great. We lost touch for some years, and reconnected in the 1990’s – and we had some good times together in Rotorua. Never forget when we got on the roundabout and you kept forgetting to tell me which exit to take. Rest in Peace, my friend, and catch up with loved ones gone before. You were one of the best!

  2. Farewell, my friend. I was unable to make it up to your funeral but watched it online. It was a fitting tribute to such a lovely lady. I was especially touched when I heard the name “Dragon Lady” used that my younger brother gave you those many years ago when you started calling him “Mrs. Mopp” You were such a good friend to me for over 50 years and we both helped one another through some really horrific times. I will miss you deeply and I will miss our skyping as we were both unable to travel very far with our decreased mobility. R.I.P. my friend. You are now pain-free and hopefully moving at the pace you were used to.

  3. Farewell Aunty Dii, I will always remember the family Christmas get togethers growing up, and the Christmas pud that you helped put together with the hidden coins. I remember our talk on the phone when you called Mum during my visit this March. Rest well. Sean
