It is with great sadness we note the passing, too soon, of Waimaria Kirsten Erueti. Beloved mama of Kiwa; daughter of Evelyn Tuuta and the late Gabriel Kaperiera Erueti; sister of Mynetta and the late Aaron.
Waimaria fenced in Wellington with her formative coach, Lesley Calver. Waimaria went on to hold National Championship titles in Schools, Juniors and Senior Championships. She also represented New Zealand in Oceania, Commonwealth Teams and competed at the World Junior Championships (1986). She last competed at the 1999 National championships in her favourite event, epee. A respected role model for maori athletes, Waimaria lived her dream, loved fencing and gave everything, with all her heart.
