Descendant of Isabel ( Isabella, Bella) Dixon who married Arthur William Curtis Snr who are buried in Tauranga.
Their son Arthur William Curtis is my Grandfather my Mother is Arthur Juniors eldest child and remaining living daughter.
Isabel and Arthur my great grandparents had another daughter who we think is the youngest Ivy Curtis married to Burt West with a son John last we knew they reside in Melbourne Australia. Ivy was in her eighties and was weighlifting which is really amazing. My Mum got to meet her Aunty Ivy back in the early 2000s and she gave my Mum photos of her weightifting which is how I know.
I had the previledge of meeting Tui Curtis/Munroe she was a lovely lady who was very generous, Tui was residing at 7 Vogel Street Kawakawa Bay of Islands. The house was old and a huge homestead which she only used part of it, from what we have heard Tui was called the "mayoress" of Kawakawa very active as she still played Bowls and was still driving a little.
Not long after maybe a year or so Tui passed, I am glad I got to meet my Granfathers sister.
Got my memory going now will be checking dates as to when I went to Meet Tui...
