It is with great sadness that we share the news of the death of Massey University Student Felicity Wren, 20. Felicity was travelling in a car that collided with a truck on State Highway 27 south of Auckland.
Felicity was a talented photographer and was travelling to participate in Auckland’s Fashion Week as a photographer. She was in the third year of a Bachelor of Design (Hons) majoring in Photography.
On behalf of Massey University, Vice-Chancellor Steve Maharey conveyed his deepest sympathy and heartfelt condolences to Felicity’s family, friends and students and staff who knew her.
College of Creative Arts Pro Vice-Chancellor Associate Professor Claire Robinson says Felicity was an extremely talented and popular student. “She was described as sparkling and talented and was very well liked by staff as well as students.”
A memorial service will be held on the Wellington campus later in the semester.
The photographs that follow are just some examples of her work. More can be found at cargocollective.com/felicitywren
I don’t know where to start because for one I didn’t know you personally, yet I feel like I knew you anyway. Those around you spoke of you and I heard snippets, but most of all, from your beautiful sister who we met while we were in London. She carries so much love for you, and your beautiful smile lives on in her. Our family were all looking forward to meeting you at Christmas this year, but we will have to carry the torch for you and celebrate your life the only way the Stephens family know how, by laughing and sharing joy. Brett will always look after Jess. Rest easy, Fliss, and know you are in our thoughts always.
To dear Fliss,
It has been an honour to know, work, have fun with and love you.
What we are all feeling now is a reflection of just how much you gave to this world.
Always in my heart,
P.s. I especially miss your bounce. XOX
you were always as sweet as a melted toffee pop and as adorable as a wee kitten. I don’t think I ever saw your face without a smile. Always so funny, kind, and caring. Everything I always wanted to be came so easily and naturally to you. But I was never jealous, Just in awe that someone could be so amazing and inspiring. I felt like I always wanted to be around you as you were always so easy to talk to and have fun with. I will always remember your sweet heart and friendly manner. You are an inspiration and I hope that I can make myself a better person, always treating others in the special way you would. Your an Angel that has been called home early. Fly free Fliss, and watch over us till we see you again. Love Forever, Jayne xxxx
My darling Fliss,
You were the happiest, most charming girl I have ever met. I loved your welcoming smile and your ready compliments, your wit and your talent. The rest of the gang and I are struggling to continue without you. I hope your last thoughts were happy ones and you left us feeling at peace with the world.
So much love and sadness,
Greta and the rest of the team at Country Road
