"Kim Hunt: a daughter, wife, mother and registered nurse (RN).
A dedicated, caring RN who will remain in out hearts."
Two short statements, written in red, on a whiteboard inside the Lockhart multi purpose service (MPS) are how staff sum up a colleague and friend taken too soon.
Outside black ribbons have been tied to yellow poles at the MPS entrance - they've been put there by staff as a mark of respect.
Murrumbidgee Local Health District (MLHD) acting Director of operations Ken Hampson said Kim would be remembered most for being a mother, a fantastic nurse, colleague and friend.
"For me, (the memory is) reminding me of what we need to do to patients, which is listen, touch and be kind, Mr Hampson told media as he paid tribute outside the MPS.
He said the service will operate as normal, but staff were doing it "extremely tough" following the deaths of Kim and her three children at their home on Tuesday.
"It's a reminder to us that life is precious, but we have a family in health, we will rally around and we're open and providing clinical services for our patients," he said.
"A strong message I would like to get across is that if anybody out there is feeling anxious or depressed about this, or anything else, seek help - go and see your GP, talk to your family or ring Lifeline, it's important to do that."
As the Lockhart community mourns the loss of a prominent resident, the Murrumbidgee Local Health District (MLHD) remembers one of its valued colleagues.
Kim Hunt and her three children were found dead at their Boree Creek home on Tuesday afternoon.
Mrs Hunt was an employee at the Lockhart Multi Purpose Service (MPS), where she had worked as a regional nurse since 2000.
Mrs Hunt was appointed to clinical nurse educator at Lockhart MPS in April this year after recovering from a serious car accident in 2012.
MLHD chief executive Jill Ludford said Mrs Hunt was unsure if she would ever return to work but was very excited to still be able to use her skills and knowledge to educate other nurses.
Mrs Hunt recently spoke as a patient centred care forum attended by MLHD clinicians and used her experience as a patient to stress the need to talk to, touch and be kind to patients.
"Kim is remembered as a bubbly, positive, caring and passionate burse who was dedicated to patient care," Mrs Ludford said.
"Her death is a huge loss and she will be greatly missed by all of her colleagues and friends."
