A funeral for Auckland woman Heidi Welman-Scott, who was allegedly stabbed to death by her estranged husband, has been held this morning.
A funeral notice for Ms Welman-Scott described her as an amazing mother of Taryn and Keagen and a treasured daughter of Joy, who was "tragically taken" on November 27.
Her funeral was held at St Columba Presbyterian Church in Botany.
Following the service, mourners stood around the hearse outside the building for a final send-off and slowly filed past the coffin.

Brent Donovan Scott, 49, has been charged with murdering the 41-year-old and attempting to kill his stepdaughter Taryn Leigh Welman and her boyfriend Matija Miletic, both 22.
It is alleged Scott stabbed Ms Welman-Scott to death after neighbours heard fighting at the family home on Thursday morning last week.
Police apprehended Scott at the airport as he tried to get on a flight to South Africa, where he was from.
The couple's 14-year-old son is understood to be in the care of family.
Taryn Welman remains in Auckland Hospital where she is in a stable condition.
Mr Miletic has been discharged.
