In loving memory of Piata Tauwhare.  Loved daughter of John-lee and Liana, sister of Awatea, and Quintin and dearly beloved wife of Ifan Jones, who sadly passed away 28 May 2022, aged 30.  A service will be taking place at the Arahura Marae on Monday 27th June.  We ask that you please arrive at the Arahura Marae between 8.15 am – 8.25 am.  A welcoming onto the marae will begin between 8:30 – 8:45 am.  Full service to begin at 9.00 am.  If you wish to share a few words or a memory of Piata there will be an opportunity to do so during the service.  We would like to thank you all for the ongoing support.

    My thoughts are with all of those who knew and loved Piata. I did not know Piata personally, but from seeing photos and the kinds words written about her I can tell she was a beautiful person inside and out. May she rest in peace and love.
