Mrs Clarke was a nurse at Westmead Children's Hospital.

Fijian authorities will conduct an autopsy on Clarke's body.

Chase described the agonising decision to direct medical staff to cease working on Ms Clarke.

Initial reports confirm the nurse died of the infection but her husband said there were four additional "minor" causes highlighted.

Davies says they are greatly saddened by the news of Kelly's death and wish to express their honest sympathy to her husband, family and loved ones.

"She's got the biggest heart".

"We just want her home, it's a waiting game for us now, we're just shocked and devastated and can't explain how we feel".

Mr Clarke told News Ltd.

"Kelly was bright, bubbly and over the top; she loved her makeup and always looked the part", Kirribilli Club duty manager Launa Harper said.

In a statement provided by the family, her parents said she was "an incredible human being".

She was also remembered as "funny", "full of life" and "so beautiful" by her friends.

"She will be deeply missed and she was loved by all".

Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body, including the skin, joints, and organs inside the body.

She was taken to Lautoka Hospital, north of Nadi, where a short time later she was told she had contracted typhoid.

Mrs Clarke, a nurse at Westmead Children's Hospital, was initially thought to have typhoid, however her family has since revealed she died of severe bilateral pneumonia.

The family are asking people to contribute to the fundraiser for Kelly Clarke, with the money raised set to go towards bringing her body home and her funeral costs.

"She needs a medivac ASAP as Fiji don't have the medications she needs", Tam Brown wrote.

Mrs Clarke died later the same night, less than an hour before a medevac team arrived to airlift her to Sydney.

'You (were a) attractive girl and unbelievable sister you will be deeply missed, ' he wrote.

"My sister is now In hospital in Fiji for a friends wedding and to celebrate their honeymoon!"

"My last conversation with her, it was just a phone call from the anaesthetist to say that they were putting her in an induced coma", Mr Clarke said.

Davis says they also believe it is important to respect her family's privacy at what must be a hard and distressing time.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade is providing consular assistance to Mrs Clarke's family.
