The little girl who was known as the ‘Pink Wiggle’ has been laid to rest at St Nicholas Catholic Church in Tamworth.

Chloe battled a rare form of cancer before sadly passing away on September 17.

The congregation wore bright colours to Chloe’s funeral, with her grandfather, Darren Wallace, telling them he could “see Chloe now, smiling at all the beautiful colours you’re wearing,” according to The Northern Daily Leader.

He also thanked everyone for their love and support.

A slideshow of photos and videos were shown of Chloe’s life, capturing her love for the Wiggles, music and her family and friends.

The service also featured some of the family’s favourite songs, including Jessica Mauboy’s Fallin’ and Rod Stewart’s Have I Told You Lately.

Mourners also wore purple t-shirts with the message “Most people could only dream of seeing an angel, we got to cuddle one.”

The service was led by Father Chris Onuekwusi, who said that while it was very painful that Chloe had passed away, that they were grateful for the two years they got to spend with her.

Chloe’s bright yellow coffin was carried out of the church as Jay Laga’aia rendition of Float Away played – the last song the little girl listened to before passing away in the arms of her family.
