Family Obituary Message: THIRKETTLE, Flora Margaret (nee Smith).  "Born May 5, 1928. Passed away on May 1, 2021. Died after a short illness. Beloved Sweetheart of the late George Thirkettle. Daughter of the late Thomas and Gladys Smith (nee Granfield). Sister of Eve and the late Noel, Ernie and Christine, Margaret and the late Vic, Pat and Fely, Bernie and Marion, Fred and Sandra, Ted and Pipak, Bob and Shona. A much loved mother to Heather and the late Bob, Iris and the late Barry, John and Jackie, William and Kathy, Cherry and John, Lilac and Kerry, Reg and Michelle. Loved nana to her many grandchildren, great and great great grandchildren. A step-mum to Daphne and the late George, Rose, Pansy, Lily and Violet, and Nana to their children. Flora was a role model to many foster children over the years. As a family we drew inspiration from her life as an honest, clean-living, hardworking mum and a neighbour to all. Her passing leaves a huge hole in all our hearts. To many, she was 'Queen of the Kaipara'. Many thanks to the doctors and nurses of Hospice, and the carers, who cared so much for Flora in her final weeks. Heartfelt thanks to Iris and Cherry for the loving care and support for mum during her last months, and to Kipa and Paul for their loving care of their nana during her last days. The" Queen of the Kaipara" has set her nets and sailed away on her final voyage. Messages to Haven Falls, "
