"She said over the phone she was scared she was going to die and I just told her I loved her, what else could I say?"

Mrs Clarke's brother, Murray Shaw, posted a loving tribute to his sister after she died.

Ms Clarke was placed in an induced coma due to organ failure and septicaemia, with her sister starting a fundraiser to bring her home for emergency treatment.

Mr Clarke told News Ltd.

Mr Clarke said it would cost $61,000 to fly her body back to Australia in a private plane.

Donations are still pouring in despite the changed circumstances; more than 700 people have donated to the campaign in the last two days, and more than $50,000 has been raised.

The heartbroken husband of a newly-wed who died on her Fiji honeymoon has revealed grim details of the moment he identified her body in a shipping container.

Mr Clarke also said while there were several elements that contributed to his wife's death, the certificate indicates it was severe bilateral pneumonia that was the primary cause.

He said they had travel insurance but were waiting on a forensic Police report to find out her cause of death. Local medical professionals disagreed and rushed Kelly to Lautoka Hospital.

A spokeswoman for The Children's Hospital at Westmead said Kelly-who worked as a post-operative nurse-would be sorely missed.

Mrs Clarke finally succumbed to her illness at 10.40pm on Friday night, less than an hour before a medevac team arrived to airlift her to Sydney.

"I just said 'I love you, and we're going to get out of this, be strong, I love you, and I'm coming straight away'".

Mr Clarke now has to plan a funeral six months after the couple were Wednesday.

"Kelly was a dedicated nurse who loved working with children and will be greatly missed by her colleagues and patients", she said in a statement.

The couple were married in April. She passed away shortly before she could be medically evacuated.

'This terrible situation shouldn't have happened, ' Mr Clarke said.

The Department of Foreign Affairs has declined to discuss her case - but say it is providing consular assistance.
