Perth tragedy

Horowhenua Chronicle - - NEWS -

BILL STIR­LING Grey Power mem­ber, Levin The shock­ing tragedy that oc­curred in Perth has touched the lives of many in Levin.

The vic­tims were the daughter, grand­daugh­ter and great­grand­chil­dren of the late Howard and Kay Kempton who lived at the Ma­sonic Vil­lage. Kay died in 2012 and Howard a few years ear­lier.

Kay was a long term mem­ber and ex-president of the Waiopehu Women’s In­sti­tute and was nom­i­nated by them to re­ceive a Gold Hon­our badge, the high­est award given by the NZ or­gan­i­sa­tion.

The de­ceased mother-in-law of the tragedy, Bev­er­ley, was known to many mem­bers from her vis­its to Levin, as was her older sis­ter Mau­reen who has flown to Perth to deal with the sit­u­a­tion.

The many friends of the late Howard and Kay ex­tend their deep­est sym­pa­thy to Mau­reen and her sib­lings as they deal with their ter­ri­ble loss. NAME SUP­PLIED Levin
