The daughter of Australian sporting greats Lisa Curry and Grant Kenny had been devastated by the loss of her 'soulmate' boyfriend and battled alcoholism and an eating disorder before she passed away this week. 

Jaimi Kenny passed away at Sunshine Coast University Hospital on Monday morning surrounded by her family, including both her Olympian mother and Ironman father.

The family will farewell their daughter at a funeral on the Sunshine Coast on Saturday.

The 33-year-old had been supported by her parents and siblings through many years of treatment for her eating disorder at private clinic End ED, on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland. 

Jaimi had also been battling alcoholism and had struggled to cope with the loss of her then-boyfriend Lachy Crossley in July 2017.  

Lachy's mother Gayle described the couple as 'a modern day Romeo and Juliet' who had made plans to 'be together forever'.

'They were a beautiful couple with beautiful souls,' she told Daily Telegraph.

'Lachy had an infectious laugh and Jaimi just beamed.'  

Despite her ongoing struggles, friends of Jaimi told how she always brought 'light and laughter' to the lives of those she around her.

Her model brother Jett paid tribute to his sister on Tuesday, admitting that while he 'may not have been the best brother' they 'loved one another unconditionally'.

'I may not have been the best brother to you all the time, I know you thought you weren't being the big sister I needed all the time, but I do know we loved one another unconditionally all the time,' he wrote.

'I will love you forever. Rest In Peace my beautiful big sister, the world lost one of its treasures yesterday but heaven gained one. You will be dearly missed by all whose lives you touched.' 

End ED is located in the mountains surrounding the Sunshine Coast and provides an avenue of support for eating disorder sufferers and their families.

Among those to pay tribute to Jaimi in the wake of the news of her death was End ED clinician Millie Thomas. 

'You are my best friend and my soul sister and you always will be,' Ms Thomas wrote.

'My heart is shattered into a million pieces right now - I can't fathom life without you.

'My days will never ever be the same without your love, your light and your laughter.

'You mean the world to me darling heart and I will love you forever and always.' 

Lisa shared a statement just hours earlier telling of her family's 'unbearable' pain at the death of her 'beautiful daughter'.

'Our hearts are completely broken. Our beautiful daughter Jaimi has lost her battle with a long-term illness and passed away peacefully in hospital yesterday morning with her loving family by her side,' Lisa wrote. 

'So loved. So beautiful. So kind to everyone... So painful. I can barely breathe.
