Sione Mataitonga

20/12/1959 - 09/05/2022

In loving memory of Sione Mataitonga who sadly passed away on the 9th May 2022.

We will be video streaming Sione’s funeral service live online. To view the live stream, please visit the following link on Monday the 16th of May at 11:00am.


Please be aware that Sione’s service will take place in two parts – a chapel service, followed by a burial. The live stream will be available for both from the above link, but there will be a pause between as we travel a short distance to the cemetery. Please be patient. When we arrive at the cemetery the stream will become active again.

Live Streaming is also available for the family’s gathering to pay respects and to view Sione on Sunday the 15th of May, commencing at 6:00pm. To view this live stream please use the following link:
