Members of the Camden Haven community are invited to slip on a pair of jeans and attend a final farewell for Erica (Ric) Walker.

The ceremony and celebration of Ric's life is on Friday, October 11 from 10.30am at 98 Sunnyvale Road Kew.

It was Ric's request for everyone to wear their jeans because she was always a "jeans girl".

Ric passed away on Sunday, September 29 after she fought hard against a brain tumour.

"Ric has fought the biggest fight, she looked it fair in the eye and punched well above her weight," Ric's husband Mick said in a post on social media.

"Ric was initially told she had three months and she would lose use of her whole left side.

"Ric refused to accept that as there were so many things she wanted to do."

Over the past year and two days, since she was diagnosed, Ric spent every spare second with her children.

The farewell will be situated in the paddocks of the Walkers' home, followed by a private burial service.

Everyone is welcome to stay for lunch and remember the amazing life of Ric.

People are asked to bring their own drinks and chairs. Camping is available at the property if people choose to stay.

A courtesy bus will be available to the Laurieton and North Haven areas.

The Camden Haven community rallied behind the Walker family with a special fundraising event in January this year.
