The mother of New Zealand, Abby Hartley, died in a hospital in Bali despite the desperate effort of her family to raise money and take her home.
Mrs. Hartley, in the photo surrounded by her family, spent approximately one month in the hospital where she was placed in an induced coma.
Mrs. Hartley's 18-year-old husband, Richard, and his son, Toby, 16, were at his bedside at the time of his death.
"Mom is at peace now and we are extremely grateful for the many years of joy and love that Mom brought us," the statement said.
"It will remain forever in our memories and hearts and will undoubtedly make its presence known when it takes care of us".
The statement said that the family "wants to thank everyone for their love and support."
He added that the family did not have bad feelings towards the New Zealand government and understood their decision not to provide assistance.
Ms. Hartley had been taken to the ICU at the BIMC Nusa Dua Hospital, where she underwent surgery after it was discovered that she had a crooked bowel.
She was rushed to the hospital on the island of Indonesia after experiencing severe pain on the first day of her second honeymoon.
Later, Ms. Hartley was placed in an induced coma after suffering an acute respiratory distress syndrome.
Ms. Hartley's family (pictured left) launched a Givealittle fundraising page on August 9 to raise money for expensive hospital expenses and a substantial bill to evacuate her medically.

He developed an infection after his condition deteriorated further and he had fluid in his lungs, one of which had collapsed. She had also developed septicemia.
On August 9, a Givealittle page was launched to raise money for hospital expenses and a considerable bill to take it home on a medical evacuation flight.
Her family was forced to open the crowdfunding page when Ms. Hartley's insurance company refused to cover her medical expenses because she had a pre-existing condition.
Ms. Hartley's condition was too unstable to travel on a commercial flight and she would have needed a specialized plane with the necessary attention to get to New Zealand.
The fundraising page closed on August 30 with an increase of NZ $ 237,602.
As of last week, the family said they had already paid $ 56,000 in medical fees, but had faced even more expenses.
The funds raised were given to the family, with a $ 170,000 flight paid.
Givealittle spokeswoman Kate Thomas said in a statement that "our thoughts are with (Mrs. Hartley's) family at this time."
"Sophie Hartley has been incredibly diligent with updating the page and answering questions from the public," he said.

"We are confident that when she or her family is ready they will update the page with the remaining funds that will be used."
The family had also begged the New Zealand government and Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern to help bring Ms. Hartley home.
But the deputy prime minister and foreign minister, Winston Peters, wrote to the family to say that no help could be offered because Ms. Hartley fell ill abroad.
Ms. Ardern told Radio NZ that she wished "I was in a position to have helped."
He heard about Mrs. Hartley's death on Monday afternoon and offered his condolences to the family.
"There is no doubt that this is obviously destroying and including all the New Zealanders who came to support the family," said Ms. Ardern.
"The money was raised to take it home and it's incredibly sad that that opportunity just did not happen."
