Obituary - JEXI KEOWN

It is with great sadness and a real sense of loss that we learned that Jexi Keown passed away on Saturday afternoon, 28th January 2018.

Jexi became a member of SeniorNet Hutt City in February, 2004. Over the years she has attended or assisted with tutoring in most classes, often at short notice.

Jexi served on the committee from 2011 to 2017 and fulfilled the post of Student Coordinator with distinction. She was a very warm and a very real people person with a bubbly personality, a very friendly demeanour, always ready to welcome people, reassure them and put them at ease, always willing to help with whatever and in whatever way she could. She was a very dedicated and loyal member of SeniorNet, believing completely in our goals and mission.

Jexi will be sadly missed by committee, tutors and members but our lives are so much richer for having known her and sharing in so many things with her.
