Kua hinga a Lucy (Ruiha) Allen, nee Poharama.
We have been asked by the whanau of Lucy Allen to let all our people know that their cherished mother passed away today.
Whaea Lucy was the daughter of Kataraina (nee Rewiti-Rutene) and John Poharama. Her tupapapaku will be brought to her home opposite the substation on Oruru Rd tomorrow (Friday 6th November 2015). She will lay in her home for that night, before being taken to Karepori marae on Saturday 7th November. We will advise funeral arrangements as they come to hand.
A ka tahuri i a ia nga ngakau o nga matua ki nga tamariki, me nga ngakau o nga tamariki ki o ratou matua. Ka aroha ki te whanau pani. Haere atu ra e te whaea Lucy ki to kainga tuturu. Haere haere haere atu ra.
