Things will never be quite the same now you're gone but we all know you're at peace now. You touched my family so much, it's sad to think you're no longer at Norris Grove. We may not have been there with you alot over the last few years but you were never far from our thoughts and prayers. Will miss the coin game and the times we used to share with you back in the day. I remember the first time over your place you slammed me up against the wall in the kitchen lol. I will miss that smart mouth for sure.

Love you always Bird! Until we meet again XX


Tina Huriwai


So sorry to hear of Georgie's passing. She will be forever loved and missed by all. I loved her sense of humour, always had a good laugh with Georgie. I last saw her at mums funeral May 2011, it was good to see her.

Gone too soon.

Love to all the family, God bless you all.

We are all going to miss her that's for sure.

Love Tina and family xxx

Karen Reid



As I sit here reading the tributes to you, tears fill my eyes as I realise you are actually gone, it hasn't quite sunk in yet. I wished it wasn't true & I could just pop up to Norris randomly to see you & hear you say 'hey Kare'. You will be in my heart forever & my thoughts every day.

Missing you so much already xx till we meet again stay cheeky, love you always Aunty Georgie.

To Uncle D, Anarei, Geryn, Liam, Ayden, Chelsea & Shaunee I am here for you guys always & forever xx

Love Kare

Fiona Newson

To Darren & Family

My heart broke at hearing the loss that you have suffered. Even though it has been many years since I have seen Georgina, I still remember what a wonderful person she was. Georgina was a beautiful lady both inside and out, with a wicked sense of humour.

I have brilliant memories of Georgie and you all, which I will carry with me wherever I go. I am sad that I can not be closer to you during this time, however our love and thoughts are with you all.

I will never forget your cheeky smile and the way your smile welcomed everyone into your heart. You are and always will be a beautiful person with a heart full of gold, you made everyone you knew feel special and important. You were an amazing mum, wife, friend to all that knew you and the world is a little sadder for your passing. You will forever be part of me and who I am.

My love goes out to everyone who is missing you and I hope you are in a safe and wonderful place celebrating your life.

As I sit here thinking of things to say, tears roll down my cheeks. You affected our lives greatly, it's hard to say Goodbye. You were a wonderful, cheeky, beautiful woman who did change our lives and we will never forget you. Thank you for choosing us to be in your life, thank you for all you have done, thank you for being on this earth.

Forever in our hearts - Love you always x x x

Maria Boxer


To Darren & family,

My sincere condolences for you all! Such a difficulty to put together words that could possibly make any sense expressing my sympathy for your loss. Georgie - my memories of her endless choices in haircuts and hair colours thanks to the talented Ashley! Her cheekiness at the courts and ease at making everyone feel as though she had known you for years after only one meeting.

Thank you Darren & George for your kindness, friendship and amazing memories.

All my love "Boxy"
Maria Boxer (Sydney, Australia)

Sheila Waihi


Georgie gurl

When we remember your smile,
It brightens our day,
And thoughts of your warmth and love,
Seem to smooth the way,
Your gentle spirit is still with us,
Though you are gone,
Sunny days, cool breezes,
Always in our hearts hun

Sheila, Krystal, Jaiden, Sylvia, Mike

Ngahuia Riri


Georgie... you are to all that special woman.

Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us every day.
Unseen, unheard, but always near; still loved, still missed and very dear.

To live in the hearts of those we love is never to die...


Dave Utiera



Well my friend, at least now, you can be with your boy. And, while you are at it, say halo to Aunty Cissy for me.

Love David

Shayne Smith



From the first time you joined the Smith whanau, I've always had a mate to torment and laugh with, missing teeth and all!

It is with much regret I was unable to see you in your last days. I will always treasure your friendship as a sister-in-law for all these years.
Watch out for me when it's my time!

Our love and thoughts are with your whanau,

Shayne, Carolyn, Brandon, Daniel & Nathan

Maree Ashcroft


Well my friend well no more pain for you. You and Uncle Philip can have fun up there talking about the old days. Everyone will look after your family for you.

Until we meet again, love you my mate

From Phyllis and family

Tanya Paramore



I will miss the times we would bump into each other but will never forget the aroha and support you gave to me and my daughters Tangiora and Mereana. An awesome Wahine, Mother and Nanny to my girls, will miss your sense of humour and staunchness. You gave nothing but aroha to me and my girls from the first time I met you and I will treasure those memories forever.

My only regret is not seeing you before you passed, be at peace e hoa, we're sending lots of aroha to you.

Kia kaha and arohanui Tarn, Tangiora & Mereana xoxoxoxoxoxoxox

Maree Bishop


Dearest Georgie,

The world has lost a ray of sunshine.

For someone that endured so much over the past few years you never forgot your family or friends, you never forgot how to find humour in any situation, you never forgot to smile and you never forgot to say Thank you.

Thanks to Sheryl & Ash I got to enjoy some magical times (shower cap, massage chair to name a couple!) with you and I will never forget those times when you showed me how to appreciate my lot.

R.I.P little lady and do try not to cause to much mayhem at your next destination cos some of us are still to come and will need a place to rest too :)

God bless always

Sheryl Tamou


I sit around and wonder
And watch the days go by
I look at all the pictures,
And ask, why did you have to die?

You've always been there for me
Because you were my best friend
And I was there for you
Until the very end.

But now it's time to let you go
Your spirit now is free
Even though you won't really be gone
Because you'll live inside of me

So when we have to leave you
At your resting place
I will always remember
Your smiling beautiful face

This is hardly a goodbye
So I won't weep anymore
Because now you're in a better place
then you ever were before.

Even though that I will miss you
And I'll think about you every day
You'll always be my best friend
And that's all I have to say.

Love Sheryl n Ash xoxo
