Now your loved ones will forever be a part of your memories and deserve a final farewell worthy of what they mean to you and your family. The tradition of erecting a memorial or headstone to honour a lost loved one is as old as humanity itself. It is part of our natu- ral desire to show our love and respect for those who have touched our lives,'' says Pat Williams of North Memorials, Henderson. According to Pat, each family has its own per- sonal story to tell, and at North Memorials they understand the import- ance of capturing that story in stone for future generations. North Memorials are prepared to serve famil- ies who require cemetery services in all areas of Auckland and beyond. At their showroom in Great North Road, they can illustrate the many options available to you as you begin the selec- tion of your memorial headstone. When you work with Pat to create your family memorial, you can expect the highest quality gran- ite and superior crafts- manship -- from design to installation. You can have the headstones shipped to a destination of your choice. Plus, there are easy payment options. CallPaton8383800.

Photo: GRANT GRIFFIN By RANI TIMOTI The last mayoress of Helensville lived a life of service. Carolyn (nee Catlow) Smith died on January 13 and was renowned for her community involve- ment and hospitality. After losing her battle with cancer, the funeral service was on January 17 at Parakai's Craigwell House where she spent her last year. Auckland District Welfare Adviser Mark Harris says Carolyn was instrumen- tal to the Kaipara Mem- orial RSA as a former president and current secretary of the women's section. She was often at the forefront of catering for all the RSA events. She loved meeting and helping people. She was well-loved through- out the women's section in the Auckland district.'' A Helensville resident for about 40 years, her late husband George was also a former RSA presi- dent and the former mayor of the district. The couple were known for their hospitality, par- ticularly of visiting dig- nitaries -- and had even met Prince Charles and Lady Diana at an Auck- land reception. Mr Harris says what impressed him about Carolyn was her deter- mination to be cheerful, particularly when she found out she had can- cer. One of the highlights of her latter years was a 10-day trip around the South Island with her close friend Rose McKen- zie. While at Craigwell House, she was also one of the first to eagerly go on mystery trips organised by Mr Harris for those he visited. In her eulogy, best friend Gail Oxton says Carolyn was a stalwart for the Helensville Rail- way Station, volunteering many hours for bus and train trip luncheons with the old menu of pie, peas and potatoes. Carolyn is survived by two children, a grand- child and her mother. IN BRIEF Help visitors Do you have a genuine enthusiasm for Kumeu, Huapai, Muriwai, Waimauku and surrounding areas?
