Beloved Wife of the late Tony Heaslip.

Dearly loved mother and mother-in-law of Jason and Liza Heaslip (ChCh), and LylaHeaslip (ChCh).

Beloved Nanny to Charlotte, Tayla, and Sarah-Jane.

Loved sister to Kaye, the late Rena, Stanley and Billy.

I would like to thank all her dear friends and whanau who have supported Mum over the last few years. A special shout out to Jan, Vaughn April, and Trishie who have looked after Mum, after Dad passed away 18 months ago.

A special thank you also to all her dear friends from Bluff that she talked to daily.

Last but not least, to all the family and whanau that went Mutton-Birding on the Titi Islands that are like one big rowdy family, and get together for a customary three-month adventure … thank you all.

Mum loved her time down there, and her ashes will be down there forever. In keeping with her wishes, a private service has been held and a gathering will be arranged in the near future.

To the family. I am sorry for your loss. I was with Ona for the last few days.
She was a very interesting lady to talk with.
I used to help with Tony as well. As required
In my capacity as care worker.

Jason and Lyla
We are saddened to hear of your Mum's passing!
Ona was a wonderful lady and a great friend to our Mum - Maureen.
We are all so appreciative that Ona was able to get to Invercargill for Mum's funeral last year.
Now Tony, Ona, Maureen and Ted can have lots of laughs together again and know that they are all looking down on us.
With love from the Jones Whanau Stewart Island.

A much loved loyal friend and confidant and will be very much missed. The phone calls, stories and history of the much loved titi Islands, visits and cuppas we've shared over the years will never be forgotten. Together with Tony again. Resting in peace forever. Never to be forgotten.
