Ntombi tragically left us on November 17 2018. She was missing but her body was found and only recently identified. Ntombi’s funeral was last Saturday 1st December.
Ntombi used to work for me for over 10 years. We changed ownership of the business a number of years ago and she moved with it but she has always been close to all of us.
For those who knew Ntombi you will no doubt have fond memories of her and be saddened by this news. Ntombi worked for over 19 years in our industry.
Working quietly behind the scenes she connected with 1000s of crew and clients capturing crew time sheets, payroll and invoicing and could be sometimes found backstage setting up artist dressing rooms. She became a mother, sister and friend to many of us.
We were blessed by her presence and we are truly saddened by this loss.
Ntombi was patient, loyal and dedicated and worked hard to ensure her 3 children were fed and schooled.
We would like to set up a fund in remembrance and honour of Ntombi. Your contribution to this fund will go towards her funeral and the schooling of her children.
Thereafter it will be used to support families of crew in the SA Events Industry.
