Hard worker who loved her family

I WRITE with great sadness regarding the report on the inquest of a dear friend, Katherine Maynard.

Yes she was a heavy drinker brought on by extreme emotional problems over the last few years. It is just a pity it was not mentioned that she was also a hard worker who loved her family very much.

Anyone who called at her home was welcomed and treated as her own – as was portrayed at her packed out standing room only funeral. I would just like people to know the real Katherine (Kathy) and hope she rests in peace.
