Adi Senimili Dyer has passed away

from Peceli
Adi Senimili is the same age as me and I knew her during childhood years when she went to St Mary's School.  Some people are special in life, and to me she was one of them. and a helpful person to the community and the vanua of Macuata and Fiji as a whole. Our condolences go to the yavuso Namara and the family in Naduri.

THE condolence gathering for the late Adi Senimili Dyer will begin today in the village of Naduri in Macuata.
Her younger brother, Taukei Namara Ratu Peni Sogia, said the vanua of Caumatalevu would head the gathering.
He said the body of the late chief would arrive in the village on Thursday for burial on Friday.
Ratu Peni described his sister as a woman of great courage and determination.
"She only reached Class 8 at Saint Mary's Primary School but she was determined to achieve high goals which included becoming the interim Minister for Women in the interim Qarase government," Ratu Peni said.
"She always helped everybody and did not differentiate anyone.
"Whoever came to her for help, no matter their race, she always went out of her way to help.
"The women in this coastal area of Macuata have also been assisted by her with community work and she always made sure the women were happy at the end of the day."
Ratu Peni said Naduri would certainly miss the advice and guidance always given by Adi Senimili during traditional functions.
"Whenever there is a village function I will have to inform her because she lives away from the village and she always advises us what to do," he said.
"And when she comes to the village during the function, I step back and let her take over. We will surely miss her."
Adi Senimili died in Vatukoula after a short illness. She was in the West visiting her children.
