Hundreds gather to remember Gold Coast mum Kelly Wilkinson in community vigil
Mother-of-three Kelly Wilkinson has been remembered as a “strong, fierce woman with an enormous heart” at a vigil in the Gold Coast.
Hundreds gathered in Parkwood on Monday afternoon to pay tribute to the 27-year-old, who was allegedly murdered by her estranged husband last Wednesday.
The crowd, many of whom were wearing green – Kelly’s favourite colour – included her father Reg Wilkinson and sisters Natalie and Emma Wilkinson and Danielle Carroll.
“Kelly was a beloved daughter, sister and mother,” the family said in a statement, which was read out by local MP Sam O’Connor.
“She had always said that being a mother was the best job in the world, and loved nothing more than watching the kids play.
