HENRY, Jane (nee Reece):
Jane's family wish to acknowledge the tremendous support they received during her illness and with her passing. She left us too soon but did not go without fighting her cancer every step of the way. As a young mother, her husband and children were of paramount importance and this seemed to give her additional courage to fight on, even when we had all run out of ideas and ways and means of combating the cancer. The Nurse Maude Association and medical staff deserve special praise, as do the early childhood care and school communities who rallied around us. Thank you to our friendsand our children's and grandchildren's friends who helped to sustain us through this difficult time. It was one of Jane's regrets that her illness meant she could not get to know you better. Thank you to our wider family who rallied behind us as we faced what every parent in such circumstances experiences an overwhelming sense of helplessness.
"Jane has gone but she will always be remembered in our hearts."
