Kathleen's Casket was carried from the Church by James, Mark, Catherine, Martin, Christopher and Sue.


The funeral service was followed by a lovely luncheon, held in the Church hall.


At Taita cemetery, Kathleen's Casket was carried by Mark, Victoria, Elizabeth, Reece, Narissa and Damien.   


Kathleen's nephew, Kevin Pett, played What a friend we have in Jesus on cornet.   


The great-grandchildren released helium balloons after the burial.  The balloons drifted away in all directions (one even dipping into the grave for a moment), all free-spirits, just like Kathleen.







 

 We would like to thank you all, for your love and support over the loss of our wonderful mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend.
