Recently the Helensville Art Centre was the gathering place for the memorial of Fiona
Whyte, held as a zoom meeting with folk from around the world including Fiona’s children in Australia. Fiona resided in Helensville from approximately 1999 to 2008 and, whilst here, she touched many lives.
The memorial was gentle and loving, and afterwards people stayed behind to share their stories of Fiona over a glass of wine and nibbles. A renowned artist and incredibly creative woman, intelligent, humorous – there are so many words to describe her and, quite simply, the world is now a duller place without her.
