The Rodney Rams Rugby League Club is mourning the passing of stalwart Lynette Penney.
A club tribute said: “She had a very big heart, full of character, and a warm friendly soul.
She was a great supporter of our club and spent loads of her time organising sports events and fundraising.
You will be missed Nettie. E aroha nui atu ana ki a koutou I tenei wa.”
