A week on from the discovery of a woman's body at a home in Tauranga, those closest to Jessie Lee Booth are still in shock.
Her friends say she was a relentlessly positive and independent woman. Now, photos are all that's left of her.
"She was the most generous and loyal friend," Alisha Koberstein said. "She was an extraordinary woman - her life ended in a tragic way but she in no way had a tragic life.
Booth was found dead in her home by police one week ago in a suspected case of domestic violence. It ended a violent week for Tauranga, after two men were killed near a property at McLaren Falls.
Two days later, bullets were sprayed through the streets during a car case which ended in police shooting a man dead.
That man was Jessie Lee's partner, Anthony Fane.
"We knew them all and we knew the family," Koberstein said.
"They were a loving family and [it] was something we never expected. It's a shock."
Their deaths leave a six-year-old and a newborn without parents.
Anneka Robertson's six-year-old son is in the same class as Jessie Lee's daughter.
Jessie Lee was laid to rest on Wednesday. A vigil will also be held at Mt Maunganui Beach on Saturday to remember her - letting off helium balloons with messages of love.
"She would love tomorrow [Saturday]," Robertson said.
