Dorothy Neilson

Dorothy passed away, peacefully at home in Tairua on 11th November 2015. You will be missed by all. The Archives will remain a legacy of your wonderful efforts over a long period of time.

Because the Archives are to be relocated early in 2016 and to allow staff the time and opportunity to manage the move, the Archives website will be temporarily closed. All Fletcher Trust Archives enquiries to: archives@fb.co.nz
