Jenny was very good to us when we were new migrants to New Zealand and my husband had just started at Hamilton Girls’ High. She rented us her Storey Ave house for over a year, mostly furnished.

When she decided to sell the house she offered us first option on buying it, but sadly it wasn’t the right time. She sold us the whole house lot of furniture, including Manchester, pots and pans and cutlery for not very much money. We still use some of the sheets and the dining room table, amongst other things :-)

I will never forget Jenny and Bob’s kindness to us both when we were so new here.

May her soul Rest In Peace.
