Over 40 years Funeral Directing experience

Over 40 years Funeral Directing experience 20 years on the North Shore

I have over 40 years of experience in funeral directing, of which 20 years were on the North Shore. We established Elliotts Funerals in Tauranga, before I eventually returned to live on the North Shore, where I took up the roles of Funeral Director at Dils Funerals and H Morris Funerals, kick-starting my career in Auckland funeral services. "The part I play as a funeral director is very flexible, as some families want us to take care of all the small details, while others are very hands on. I enjoy the diverse types of people that I meet and enjoy being of assistance in helping families create a great farewell service."

25 years Organist and Music Director at St Joseph’s Church, Takapuna Past teacher at St Joseph's, Rosmini College Takapuna and Stella Maris School Silverdale.

As a North Shore resident for the over 40 years, I have 25 years of experience as the organist and Music Director at St.Joseph’s Catholic Church in Takapuna. I began my music playing at St Vincent de Paul’s Church in Milford at a young age. I have 5 grown up children and have spent time teaching at St.Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, Rosmini College and Stella Maris School in Silverdale, before dedicating my time to becoming a full time lady funeral director in our family business. I find that my position as a lady funeral director, allows me to work with families at a most vulnerable time and it is a very special and rewarding one. I look forward to sharing many ideas to help make your loved one's service beautiful and memorable. My interests include music, walking, grandchildren, quilting and spending time with my family.
