“As you all would know, Odetta lived many lifetimes and experiences in her short 25 years,” Ms Vlahiotis wrote.

“Odetta worked hard, loved hard and fought for everything she believed in. She held her loved ones close and was the most outgoing, impressive, intelligent, beautiful and larger than life woman.

“Her fearlessness and courage will live on with us all and if you knew her, please, honour her in every way you can; everyday.

“We will hold her memories close and her soul closer. This is not goodbye, but truly; we will meet again.”

Ms Vlahiotis said her sister spent most of her time caring for their parents, who had both suffered brain injuries in two separate car accidents. 

“Her life was challenging juggling caring for her parents and her other commitments, as she was so passionate about all that she did,” she said.
