We LOST our 2 precious ones in a FIRE Please HELP us to rebuild our lives: Arohanui ki a koutou katoa

Manapouri, Southland

Tēnā Koutou Katoa,

In Loving Memory of Kelly Ann Kemble and Kelly Jnr

On a tragic Thursday in Southland, Manapouri, we lost our dear Taonga Kelly and her beloved son, Kelly Jnr, in a devastating fire. Kelly is survived by her loving partner Jason Hoggard, her six children, and 7 grandchildren, who are now facing the unexpected and unimaginable pain of losing both their mother and brother.

We are raising funds to bring our taonga back to Northland, where they can be laid to rest surrounded by whānau and friends.

Additionally, we also want to support Kelly's devoted partner, Jason Hoggard, who has lost everything. Kelly spoke highly to me of Jason and referred to him as 'My Guy'—a doting, loving, and generous man who also adored her son Kelly Jnr. Help us to thank Jase and help him to rebuild his life from scratch as they also didn't have insurance.

We also seek support for Kelly's children who will need assistance during this time of profound grief and loss. Any koha towards tangihanga costs, flights, petrol, and support especially for the younger children will be greatly appreciated. Your generosity will provide the manaakitanga and aroha they need.


He aroha whakatō, he aroha puta mai.

If kindness is sown, then kindness you shall receive.

We deeply appreciate your aroha. Every contribution will help Jason and also Kelly's children through their grief and ensure Kelly and Kelly Jnr are laid to rest with mana and aroha.

Arohanui ki a koutou katoa.

Lisa Hoeta's involvement (page creator)

Kia Ora koutou katoa, Ko Lisa Hoeta tōku ingoa.

My name is Lisa Hoeta and Kelly was my best friend of over 32 years and I have been tasked to create this page in support of this precious whanau after we tragically lost Kelly Ann and Kelly Jnr in a fire.

Use of funds

All koha will support Jason Hoggard (Kelly's doting partner) as their home burnt down along with all of their possessions. It will also support Kelly's surviving tamariki and mokopuna in their time of need & any tangihanga, transportation needs.

Our beautiful Taonga have been laid to rest   17 July 2024

Thank you so very much to everyone who has and is still to donate, for your manaakitanga, koha and aroha at this difficult time, we are truly so very grateful from the bottom of our hearts ❤️

Kelly and Kelly Jnr were laid to rest on Monday with whanau and friends there to farewell our Taonga. The weather was very wet as the Lord showed us the tears shed during this difficult and challenging time.

Little Kelly was a tiny scholar and one day he said to his mother, did you know that rainbows are actually full circles? What you see is only half of it? With the addition of a whole lot more scientific jargon hehe..Mum (Kelly snr) shared this beautiful story with me one day when I marvelled at a rainbow and I never forgot it and as their service came to an end, what should appear..Aniwaniwa 🌈 in the sky..what a beautiful and fitting farewell to two special people.

Moe Mai Ra KellyGang may you rest in Peace with our Lord x

I pray for Blessings over Kelly’s beautiful children, her partner Jase and also her whanau as they navigate the new hikoi ahead. Lord bless them and keep them safe, give them comfort and strength. Amen 🙏

Whanau I ask that you continue to keep them in your prayers x

Love you kids so much as I loved your Mumma and brother x Arohanui 🤍
