She may be remembered as the mother of a great rugby family, but Mary Going also made a mark on her own account in Northland.

Mrs Going, nee Paki, died yesterday at her home in Maromaku aged 105.

Relative Winston Peters says she played an important role in her community as well as helping run the family farm.

He says her guidance helped her sons Sid and Ken become All Blacks and, along with a third son Brian, Māori All Blacks.

Mary Going’s funeral service will held at noon on Friday at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Chapel in Maromaku.

No amount of dollars will be able to fix what happened to Teina Pora
WILLIE JACKSON: Teina Pora has not been compensated appropriately, twenty one years in jail and $2.5million plus an apology just doesn’t seem to add up.
Pora case is a study in structural racism
MARTYN 'BOMBER' BRADBURY: I believe it is impossible to seriously critique the terrible miscarriage of justice against Teina Pora without revealing the naked structural racism still at the heart of our colonial justice system.
The legacy of punitive policies is homelessness.
CLAUDETTE HAUITI: Minister Bennett wouldn’t have visited with Te Puea kainga-kore whanau themselves, the media mob hovering around her meant privacy issues would’ve kicked in. But if she had, Minister Bennett would’ve come face to face with her punitive reforms.
