Forde, Vivien Kay Death Notice 2012

FORDE, Vivien Kay (nee Grover).
After a long illness and a courageous battle aged 43, Kay passed gracefully on September 13, 2012 at Summerset in the Vines; she was surrounded by her family.
She was the much loved wife of Steven, the proud mother of Jarrod and Bradley, the daughter of Liz and Alan (London), the sister and sister-in-law of Leonie and Cameron, James and Rebecca and much adored Aunt of Nathan, Imogen and Amelia.
“Words can not express how much we all loved her, how in awe we are of the dignity with watch she has fought and how much we will miss her.”
A service will be held at St Luke’s Havelock North at 11am, on September 15, 2012 followed by a private cremation.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Kay Forde Opportunity to Swim Trust, a trust to be formed to assist children to learn to swim.
