Death Notice

Passed away peacefully at home on 10th October 2018, in the presence of her family. Ann fought her battle so hard, right until the end - a feisty lady whose spirit never gave up, her laughter, wit and compassion will be so missed. 57 years on this earth was not long enough for us. Much loved wife and partner of John. Courageous mum and mother-in-law of Kris and Leah, Libby, and Catherine and Matt. Much loved nana of Finn and Tommy. Daughter of Claude and Louise Cole, and daughter-in-law of Artie and Dawn.
"There once was a woman named Ann
Whose answer was always 'Yes, I can'.
The cancer did beat her, and, alas, we couldn't keep her,
And no better could be found on this land."
By Ann's request, a private cremation has been held. We would like to thank family and friends for their support, camaraderie, anecdotes and help over this long journey. We would also like to thank the Waikato District Nurses, especially Karen, for their wonderful care.
"May you rest forever in peace. We miss you already."
All communications to the Cumpstone family, PO Box 137, Te Awamutu 3840.
