Kathleen Mato’s funerals

On Saturday the 2d of January 2021, family, whanau and friends gathered to Nukutaurua road to attend Kathleen Mato’s tangi. Kathleen lead the Whangawehi Catchment Management Group right from the onset and had the vision of a fully restored Whangawehi catchment. Kathleen was a genuine Leader who worked tirelessly for the betterment of our environment. Kathleen rests in the family urupa under a beautiful Puhutukawa tree, a few hundreds meters from the sea she missed so much lately. Kathleen will be missed by us all. She leaves behind her an impressive legacy for us all to enjoy.

Nga mihi nui kia koe Kathleen.
