1959 – 2019
Jill died peacefully on the 12th December 2019 at home surrounded by loved ones. Ken and Malia were holding hands with her in her final moments. She was aware of the love around her and was not in pain.
Jill was a fearless campaigner for ovarian cancer, a brilliant journalist; broadcaster; beloved wife, fierce mother; friend to many. She worked tirelessly all her life to call out injustice; make the world a better place. Jill put ovarian cancer firmly in the mind of Australians and her successful advocacy will save the lives of countless women in the future. She started the social movement Pink Meets Teal which lobbies for cancer funding fairness.
Jill was an inspiration to everyone who knew her, and her love; care for her dearest was extraordinary . We’ve all cried bucketloads of tears; don’t know when we will stop.
