The husband of a young Sydney woman who died in Fiji has spoken of her final hours, during which he attempted to reassure her and told her he loved her.

She was placed into an induced coma and was reportedly in a very unstable condition.

"I told her I loved her, we're going to get out of here, everything's going to be okay", Clarke has told media.

The report says it was initially suspected that she had contracted typhoid, however blood tests revealed that the disease was not the cause of her death.

The 24-year-old's mother Karen told 7 News her daughter was a "beautiful, caring, kind and loving person".

Clarke's sister started a GoFundMe page when her sister was first admitted to the hospital, asking for monetary help to bring Clarke home to be treated.

Her husband, Chase Clarke, told Fairfax she was 'outspoken, smart, courageous, and had the biggest heart'.

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