Couch whānau in Vancouver

Three branches of the Couch whānau were represented at a recent whānau barbeque in Vancouver. Rosalie (Rosie) Plaskett, daughter of Bill Couch, and her daughter had returned from a cruise to Alaska. Rewi Couch (moko of Tog Couch) with his wife Marilyn were in town to help their daughter Nepeya settle in at her course at Vancouver Film School. Donald, son of Arthur Couch, and wife Dorothy are in Vancouver for the northern summer. Donald’s son Peter and wife Leanne along with their children, Evan, Maren and Oliver hosted the barbeque. Also present were Donald’s daughter, Katherine, her husband, Ian and their children, Kalan, Kara and Kirianne.
