Dearest Family & Friends in Zimbabwe

It is with great sadness we let you know that Sheena Collier, our wonderful mother passed away on Friday 14 August at 7.45pm.

Please forgive our late notice and if you have already heard our terrible news, we hope you will understand our shock and grief at her sudden death.

Although we were so very proud of her phenomenal fight against lymphoma cancer, on Wednesday she woke up in terrible pain. She was taken to her doctor where she was admitted and it was discovered the cancer was back. Mum was "comfortable" on Friday but confused and drowsy and she slipped away peacefully. Father John saw Mum on Thursday night and gave her last rites.

We have planned a full requiem mass for her here in Bloemfontein on Thursday 20 August at 2pm. She was the most remarkable woman, mother, wife and friend who touched so many lives and left an indelible imprint which will stay with us all forever. We know how special all of you were to Sheena and how much your friendship and prayers meant to her.

May God bless you all & keep you safe
Much love to everyone
John Collier, Clifford, Angela, Cymantha & Chantal (and all our families)

  1. Does anybody know the whereabouts of Alec Friend please?
