About me

Adrienne Kohler – curious human being
This blog is about things that interest me, where I’ve been, what I like doing and what is meaningful to me. I work as a communications consultant – a jack of all trades if you like, and am bashing away on that darn novel. I’ve been a journalist, communications manager, media advisor, event manager and social media co-ordinator. Please feel free to email me via the contact page or if you are New Zealand based, call me on 021 669 424

  1. Hi, thanks for writing about our mutual great great aunt Edie. I remember meeting her in her final year when she was living at Edie Danby’s( also a relation/retired farmer) in Papatoetoe. I was 4 and I have to say she was the finest and most dignified ‘old lady’ I have met, a beautiful soul. I passed your article on to my sister. Great to have some more of her story and the photo as well. Regards, Tash ( of Hill family)


  2. hi tash – thanks for the comment, I’ve researched a lot about the nurses and plan to write more. Whereabouts are you?


  3. Hi Adrienne…I couldn’t leave a comment on your GG aunt Edith’s blog post page as comments have been disabled, but I photographed her grave today and as you haven’t mentioned about where she was buried in the blog post, I wasn’t sure if you were aware of where she was.

    I was so delighted when I commenced researching her name this afternoon to find such an admirable person. I have also included your blog page link to her story within my uploads to flickr as such a fantastic photograph on it of her and fantastic to read her words of the event.
