Born in Israel, Dr Wilks moved to Australia as a young girl before settling in South Africa with her husband Frank and her two children, Tarryn and Brett.

It's believed the men who broke into her home waited for Dr Wilks' husband to leave the property before launching their attack.

The Psychological Society of South Africa said Dr Wilks would be remembered as a mensch.

"It is probably one of the greatest honours to be called a mensch: A good soul; a person with integrity and honour; kind and considerate; someone who always treats others with the utmost respect and dignity; someone who is admired and emulated," the society said in a statement.

"Indeed, Mirah was well respected and much loved and these memories of her will stay with us."

The Society said her work impacted the lives of many people and that her experiences as an immigrant allowed to connect on a deeper level with her patients.

"She was often the identified 'outsider', among others, as an immigrant to South Africa to avoid war in another country; due to her religion; and as a survivor of childhood polio and adult kidney cancer," it said.

"Her study promised to make a seminal contribution to the lives of many, especially in the LGBTIQA+ community."
