Obituary Rosemary Ann Goord (Rosie)
We shall cherish your memory. Your warm smile will live-on in our hearts.

After a valiant two year fight against a diagnosis of, non-curable, Multiple Myeloma our dear Rosie finally succumbed to her illness. She passed away peacefully in her sleep, at home, in New Zealand at sunset on 19th August.
Rosemary Ann Crawford, daughter of Jim and Elizabeth (Betty) Crawford, was born in Arusha, Tanganyika on 9th April 1948. Shortly thereafter, the family then moved to Kenya settling in Njoro, near Nakuru. She attended a prep school in Molo in the so called "white highlands". Later she was schooled at the Kenya Girls High School, in Nairobi. This school was fondly nick named, locally, the "Boma" - this being Swahili for a kraal.
In 1964, following Kenyan independence, Rosie's family returned "home" to the UK. Here, her elder brother Christopher, attended Agricultural College and Rosie went to Secretarial College in Oxford. After finishing his college education, Christopher migrated to Australia. He was followed shortly afterwards by his younger sister. Later, in Perth W.A on 1st January 1972, at age 23, she married Ian Dale, her first husband. Together, Rosie and Ian raised five children. They lived in many different places both in Australia and NZ - but, predominately, within the Northern Territory.
Whilst living in Gove, N.T., as the children were growing up, Rosie returned to the work force. She took up employment with the Australian Government working with the Aboriginal & Torres Straight Island Commission (ATSIC). Her eldest daughter, Rebecca was the first to leave home and she moved to Christchurch, NZ. Then, in due course, in the early 1990's Rosie was transferred to Canberra and the remaining family moved with her. Whilst continuing to work for the Australian Government Rosie was subsequently promoted and moved to the Department of Regional Development.
Rosie then moved to New Zealand after establishing a tentative new relationship with Richard Goord and left her employment. Rose then re-married on her birthday, 9th April 2005. Her second husband was the son of Brian and Freda Goord. Richard's family had also lived in Kenya, near Nakuru, where he had a farm. Rosie and Richard first met as young children at a time that Rosie's elder brother Christopher and Richard attended the same prep-school. Being of similar age, they were in the same class at Pembroke House school. Christopher and Richard became "best friends" and remained so throughout their teens. They both attended the same high school, the Duke of York, Nairobi and then later on both also studied at the Royal Agricultural College, Cirencester, UK.
Thus, Rosie and Richard had known each other throughout their teens into their early twenties. Their paths had then diverged. They re-met as a result of the coincidence of Rebecca living in Christchurch. Rebecca had met Richard & Susan shortly after they had acquired a property called "Claremont". When Rosie subsequently visited her daughter she and Richard became reacquainted. Subsequently, in 2001 sadly, Susan died from Breast Cancer at just age 57.
After the children had all left school, in 2002, Rosie and Ian separated. Having worked for the Australian Government for more than 10 years, Rosie had by then become eligible for Long Service leave. She initially made a trip to the UK to catch up with long lost relatives. Here she again met Richard who persuaded her spend the remainder of her long service leave to assist him establish Claremont Country Estate as a Luxury Lodge.
The tentative relationship flourished. Rosie made Claremont her home and in the process brought true happiness back in the life of Richard who had become a widower the previous year. Over the next decade Rosie played an important role in developing and operating Claremont as an award winning 5-star luxury lodge. She proved herself to be a, natural, warm and consummate hostess. During this time she honed her culinary skills by attending the NZ Scholl of School and Wine. Rosie and Richard closed their lodge operations after the traumatic Canterbury earthquake of 22nd February 2012.
Meanwhile, Rosie embraced Richard's passion for sailing. To start with this was day-sailing in the Bay of Islands, initially, on a Corsair 31ft trimaran. Later, during the Northern Hemisphere summers they were to enjoy live-aboard cruising in Scandinavia also on a trimaran. Here, however, Richard & Rosie had progressed to a more comfortable Dragonfly-35. Rosie proved herself to be much more than a competent crew. She was a natural helmsman and after study qualified as a NZ Boatmaster. She often referred to her four summers (2009-2012) in Nordic waters sailing together with Richard as the happiest of her life.
Rosie loved Claremont. This is where she re-married and it where she chose to die. At heart, Rosie, was essentially a country girl. She loved the countryside and farm animals. Having been brought up on Kenya Rosie loved all wild life - especially Elephants. She also particularly loved horses and, of course, her dogs were always dear to her.
Rosie was particularly family minded and was very close to all her family. Above all else she loved her family:
Rosie's Family:
Eldest son Nick lives in Sydney with his partner Claudia.
Eldest daughter Rebecca lives in London with husband Alex .
Middle son Hamish and his wife Thanne live near Melbourne.
Youngest son Angus and his wife Jemma live in Canberra
Younger Daughter Olivia.
Her five children have born her 10 grandchildren:
Nick's sons Adian & Liam
Hamish's sons Flyn, Lawson & Elijah
Angus's children Jack, Jessica, Ruby
Olivia's daughter Juliet
Rebecca's daughter baby Isabel.

Rosie, by marriage to Richard, become step-mother to Richard's sons Gordon and Duncan
Gordon and his wife Thea live in the South of France.
Duncan and his partner Clair live in Auckland.
Her two step-sons have five children:
Gordon's daughters Victoria and Maia and son Cosmo
Duncan's daughters Annabel and Juliette.
In all, she leaves a husband, an former husband, five children, two-step children and fifteen grandchildren. She never differentiated between those of direct lineage and those she inherited through marriage.
