Te Ao Reremoana (Nan) Unahi  -  Orepuki

 Nan's mother, Reremoana Unahi (Nanny) Paaka, and Father Wiremu Pango (Nanny Pop) Unahi

 They had a big family and were known mainly for fishing, shearing, Freezing Workers, and vegetable picking 

 Nan was brought up at Haumoana, Hawkes Bay New Zealand

 Married John Gordon Black and they had 6 children from 1950 to 1957
 After the last child was born Nan and John separated

 Nan left the North island and spent most time down the South Island of New Zealand

 Married Kenneth Bailey a shearer originally from England and they had 4 children, brought them up in Orepuki, Southland

 Nan passed away on February 15th 2010 and is buried at Monkey Island Cemetery, Orepuki, Southland

 Nan was well known where ever she went as a hard worker, honest and straight, with no nonsense

 She not only brought up her kids but also looked after other kids and existed on few material things 
 She was very frugal, and had very little due to the circumstances at that time
 She made sure there was food in the cupboards even if it was only basic which it mostly was
 She  gathered food herself, from the sea, the rivers, creeks and garden and nothing was wasted
