TAYLOR, Kathryn:
On Wednesday, October 16, 2019 peacefully at home in Masterton, aged 47 years. Devoted Mother of Logan, Josh and Amy-Lee Taylor. Cherished daughter of Alan and Helen Pratt (Kpiti), sister of Tony and Rachel, sister-in-law of Dave, and Aunty of Benjamin (all of Wellington). So… if you are reading this I have a confession: I'm no longer here! It pains me to admit it, but apparently I have passed away. Everyone told me it would happen one day, but that's simply not something I wanted to hear – much less experience before I had my 50th! I've been ripped off in my opinion. Cancer is an evil illness. Head and Neck Cancer, from which nobody should suffer and not beat, causes me just so many unmentionable words. But I did get to write this death notice, and I want you to all celebrate my life - because I celebrated everyday knowing I was better off than so many, and I lived for fun and kindness. In lieu of flowers, or should you wish to leave a gift, I would love for Gillies McIndoe Research Institute, Hutt Plastics, Wairarapa Hospice Community Trust or Te Omanga Hospice Lower Hutt, to receive donations as this is where a difference can be made for patients. Come see me off for my final bon voyage at the Lighthouse Rainbow Hall, Intermediate Street, Masterton, on Wednesday, October 23 at 11.00am, followed by private cremation. As Tigger would say TTFN xxx Katz

Dearest Katz, words cannot express what I feel right now. I will remember you for your wonderful nature, big heart and for those long phone calls after Rangers every Monday night! We would talk at Rangers for couple of hours then you'd call as soon as I got home! There was always more to talk about. Thank goodness the phone calls were free!!! You have brought up 3 wonderful children and my thoughts and prayers go out to them at this sad time. Although distance came between us when I moved to the uk, our friendship endured and you visited once when Logan was very young. I'm sure you will have a fantastic sendoff and whilst I won't be there in person I will be in spirit. as tigger said Once in a while someone amazing comes along ...... So long Katz you were amazing!

Katz, (Shortie, Pixie) as you were known by me. I am so saddened that you lost your battle. Our teen years were full of adventure and good honest kiwi fun! I will never forget how you told my mother years later what we used to get upto and her eyes nearly popped out of her head!. You have done an amazing job bringing up your 3 children, they are a reflection of you and your values and my heart and thoughts go out to them at this difficult time. I am sure you will have a fabulous send off. Untill we meet again Much love Andy (Andrea, AndS) xox
