We remember the people who lost their lives in the Christchurch earthquake. Learn more and share your memories and thoughts.

A website has been set up by friends to honour the life and memories of Estelle Marie Cullen.

Estelle's body was retrieved from the Pyne Gould Corporation building last week, and this week the police officially named her as among those killed in the quake.

The 32-year-old worked in administration for the Perpetual Trust on the first floor of the building.

Her friends have rallied to support one another and Estelle's family by creating a website in her honour.


They have posted old photos, family pictures, holiday snaps and written stories about Estelle, whom many knew as "Stelly".

Many also sent messages of encouragement to Estelle's partner, Jacob.

American Merritt Martin said she first met Estelle at a Halloween celebration at a pub in Dallas, Texas.

"I ran right into Xena: Warrior Princess ... Estelle was decked out head to toe for Hallowe'en, bringing NZ to [Texas] via Lucy Lawless.

"Lovely, beautiful and amazing are words often over-used ... but when referring to Estelle, such words couldn't possibly ring truer."
