Passing of Rhonda Holzknecht

 Rhonda Holzknecht nee Dieckmann : 3.1.1945 - 27.11.2012

Family and friends in Butibam Village, Lae; Salamaua; Markham Valley and Morobe Province are advised of the passing of RHONDA HOLZKNECHT (, wife of our good friend and brother, Philip Holzknecht, early this morning, at Ipswich outside Brisbane.
Philip would be grateful if this information could be passed on to the elders of Butibam, especially Mesach and Bart Philemon, and also at Situm in the Adzera resettlement areas.
He wo
uld also be grateful if this message could be passed on to Andrew Baing, wife Sue and daughter Jennifer Baing-Waiko, who live on the right side of the Highlands Highway after the Umi Bridge.
Philip Holzknecht's direct contact is [614] 382 6 1030 and email is sampai2610@gmail.com
Other details will be advised in due course.
He writes: Rhonda passed away in the early minutes off this morning of sepsis,respiratory failure and the effects of scleroderma. 
She had been ill for a short time, was admitted to Ipswich General Hospital two weeks ago, and into Intensive Care last Thursday. 
Her illness progressed very quickly and she was placed in an induced coma last Friday morning
from which she never recovered. 
The illness progressed much quicker than any had anticipated and the last couple of days saw quick trips into the hospitals as doctors requested us.
The final call came at 10.30 pm Monday [last] night as Rhonda became more and more distressed with organ failure.

She will be remembered as a loving and incredibly supportive mother, a breeder of fine chickens, a friend in need, an incredible family day care mum to many children and families in need of care, a mean and competitive card player, a generally wonderful individual who made the world a better place, and for many many other things. 
She will be sorely missed by all who knew her and were touched by her. 
Sleep in Peace, my beloved.
