Taga had more than 30 years of experience in the media industry with her latest appointment being the assistant editor of Islands Business International, a media organisation that focuses on news around the Pacific.

"The funeral will be held this week however the date will be confirmed tomorrow (today)," Mr Taga said.

To respect her wishes there would be no reguregu, said Mr Taga.

She is survived by her son Aisake Niumataiwalu Tarogi and grandson Savenaca.
