Kua hinga a Atarangi Norman
Kua tae mai te rongo mo te matenga o tera o nga whaea o te Hauora o Ngati HIne, ara ko Atarangi Norman. Haere e te whaea, whakangaro atu ki te kainga kua whakaritea mai mo tatou te tangata, ki te kainga hei okiokitanga mo tatou te iwi ngaro. Haere okioki atu.
It is with great sorrow we hear of the passing of our beloved whaea, Atarangi Norman. She was the second longest serving board member. A beautiful wahine who tirelessly served our communities and is well respected around the motu for her contributions to many. Atarangi will be lying in state at Te Rawhiti marae and her kaupapa will be discussed there with details of her final arrangements to be released as they come to hand. It is understood the ra nehu will be on Monday.
He mihi aroha kia tatou, te whanau, e nga tamariki, e nga mokopuna i raro i te kapua pouri.
