In Loving Memory of Katrina Roberts

By Elissa Roberts

In memory of Katrina Roberts

Thank you for donating to the Garvan Institute of Medical Research in memory of our darling Katrina. Katrina believed strongly in their work and she would be thrilled that you have supported them and her by your kind donation.

Our daughter, our sister, our aunty, our niece, our grand-daughter and our best friend. You will forever be in our hearts.

"There are some who bring a light so great to the world that even after they have gone the light remains".

If you would like to speak with a family member, please phone Lynda Roberts (Katrina’s mother) on (07) 3355 1709.

I'm still in shock and at a loss as to how to honour my beautiful friend, taken far too soon. I've decided that each year I'll donate the money I would have spent going to the theatre with Katrina to a different charity in her name, starting with Garvan. One day I hope this means someone else will get to enjoy delightful and delicious experiences with their much loved family and friends , something they may not have otherwise have had the chance to do without this life saving medical research.

With our loving sympathy to those close to Katrina. We will miss Val's accounts of her latest adventures with Katrina, and the ways in which they were so helpful to each other.


Jane Allen

Katrina is one of those people who make an instant connection with people. That hearty laugh the love of life, theatre and the effort she would make to fit in everyone's occasions was so special. To make that impact is absolutely beautiful. I remember when that picture was taken at our friend Annette's wedding. Katrina was laughing at one of my partner's awful dad jokes! It captures her perfectly. With love Jane and Robert xxx


Brenda And Drew Roberts

We hope Katrina is at peace, we miss her very much.


Greg Whimp And Karyn Stevenson

One day I hope there will be some positive meaning to this awful accident that took Katrina from us. With love Katrina - Greg and Karyn.

For our beautiful friend Katrina, we will forever cherish our 27 years of happy adventures and memories. You may be gone from my sight, but you are never gone from my heart.


Terry Hagan

I had the pleasure of working with Katrina for several years at NAB. Katrina was a happy and valued colleague and is sadly missed.


Annette Tyrrell

We love you K. You really are the most beautiful soul and you will be remembered for all of your light and kindnesses… xx


Pat & Tricia Page

This is such a positive way to fulfill dear Katrina's wishes, as she would want there to be progress with treatments and cures, to alleviate suffering. She cared and deeply loved her Family and Friends, and will be greatly missed. We will hold her with love, in our hearts forever..


Toni Henry

It was such a privilege to know Katrina. She had such a beautiful nature and bubbly personality that endeared her to all those fortunate to be a part of her life. I can’t believe I will not hear from her again with her comments on the Swans games and players. Such a senseless loss for us all.



I worked with Katrina at Westpac. Katrina was a fabulous colleague who always had time for and cared for others. I will miss her support and friendship.

Remembering Katrina and supporting her beautiful family


Richard, Kate, Ben And Sophia

Our lovely friend Katrina. What a beautiful soul that will be so very missed. We are so sad about this tragic news, and still in disbelief. Katrina always had a smile and laugh for everyone. So easy going, and just loved to get on with life. She was incredible with Ben and Sophia. They always looked forward to her visits because she always made time for them, and they always knew that there was a very good chance that she would pitch up with a box of colourful macaroons. Whenever we see macaroons in the supermarket display, we always think of her fondly. We are so grateful and blessed to have had her friendship. Gone way too soon dear Katrina. RIP until we meet again. xxx

Don And Shelley Buchan

When we came to visit your aunt, we enjoyed Katrina's infectious smile and warm hospitality. We know she will be deeply missed.




Lorraine-ann Sullivan

Always generous with her time and her smiles.


Louise Dwyer

Remembering very happy times working with Katrina in "NAB's best ever credit team"(so named by Katrina). More that just work colleagues, our old credit team remains a valued friendship group, of which Katrina has been central. It is just unbelievable that we won't see her again. Will so miss her friendship, joyful laugh, kind messages, netball updates and our long lunches. Deepest condolences to Katrina's family.


Tom Dowler

Echo the words of Louise Dwyer. I also like Louise worked in the team referred to and continuing to keep in touch is largely due to Katrina’s efforts organising lunches etc. Condolences to all the family and whilst I can only imagine the extent of your grief be assured her loss is also deeply felt by her NAB family.


Chris Joannidis

I am just so heartbroken. Katrina was not only a colleague of mine at the NAB, she was my friend. We always kept in touch long after we left the NAB, and our close knit NAB group could always rely on Katrina getting us all together for a lunch and lots of laughs. She had such high respect for me, as I did for her. I always felt so honoured to be one of her good friends. One minute we would bounce ideas off each other and the next minute we would simply talk about nothing important. Just having her presence or hearing her voice brought so much light to my day. She was taken way too soon. She will occupy a place in my heart forever. My deepest condolences to Katrina’s family. Please take some comfort in the knowledge that she was loved so much by so many.


Cameron Family

Our deepest condolences to the Roberts family and all that loved Katrina. May you rest peacefully, Trin. Love Kiley, Rod, Coop & Joel xx


Trevor & Marion Rodwell

Extending our deepest sympathy to all the Roberts family during this difficult time. Our prayers are with you all. xo

K. I will always remember meeting Katrina around 2009 and I think from memory I recruited her into NAB and she was a fresh breath of air. Kindest soul and generous to a fault when it came to giving you her time and just being there for you. I am in shock and heartbroken that I have sadly not seen Katrina for a few years but I take pleasure in introducing her to my girlie network who quickly become best buddies. I will always remember that smile and that damn laugh of hers. It has been a privilege and honour to have had you in my life. Miss you my friend xxx
