Magnolia “Star Wars” (New Zealand-raised magnolia cultivar)
12 October 2005
Michelle Katherine Dalwood (1972–2005) began her career at the University in January 1996, working in Payroll, Human Resources and HRMIS.
Together with her husband, she realised her dream of owning a small farmlet (at Waitati) and became a mother to her adored Ethan in May 2004 – this was her greatest achievement.
Tragically, Michelle died suddenly after suffering an asthma attack.
