  17. Karen Foley

    To the Scott Family and Vi’s relatives.

    Saddened to hear of the loss of this genuine, hardworking, lovable woman with a huge smile always from her heart and a glint in her eyes.
    My parents and your parents had some fun together as young people in Fox Glacier.

    Then we all came along and their lives went in another direction.
    For the better of course.

    Thinking of you all with love and strength to remain resilent through the grieving process.

    All the best for knowing the family and all those stories that were shared with us.
    Karen Foley,

    Vi and Ivor and all of you have always been family who I respect and love…even though I haven’t talk to you folk for years…my loss !
    I am living in New Plymouth where I moved to after the earthquakes…not yet a Taranaki lad. Fondest memories of South Westland and my family on the Coast.
    Special tribute so an exceptional lady, your mother Vi. R.I.P.
