Coletta started working in the clinic as a volunteer right at the beginning. She had had a varied career working as police woman in Israel and also at Nangina Holy Family Mission Hospital as a Nurse Aid. This was on top of having 11 children! She was such a gentle and caring person and we always felt that she was extremely wise. She retired a few years ago aged over 70 and spent much of her time looking after some of her grandchildren. She had been unwell with high blood pressure for a while and she sadly died on Sunday November 8th. Her funeral was attended by hundreds of people who had travelled from far and wide to pay their last respects to a very special lady.
