Vale Lisa Chittick

Tuesday, 13th May 2014

The thoroughbred community is in mourning following the news that Lisa Chittick passed away overnight after fighting leukemia for the past 14 months. According to theinformant.co.nz, Waikato Stud principal Mark Chittick's wife had spent the past 6 weeks with her family in Los Angeles where she had travelled to try "revolutionary" new treatment against her illness. Mark's father Garry commented: "It's a terribly sad time for us all, Lisa was just a wonderful person and a big part of so many people's lives. As well as being a dearly loved member of the O'Sullivan family, Lisa was an integral part of our lives and of Waikato Stud. She wasn't just Mark's wife and greatest supporter, she played a huge part in the stud, she was full of energy and ideas, and the place will never be the same without her."
