I have just caught up with this news and always enjoyed seeing Jenny on the occasional walk to work. Thinking of her encouragement and kindness over the period of my research. Remembering her with great fondness.

Kia ora e te whnau o Jenny. We are happy to have had Jenny in our lives for more than 50 years. Her light shines brightly in our hearts and minds. Love from Denise, Jane, James and Brian Ross.

Dear Jenny, just heard tonight of your passing, what happened? It says 'suddenly' so no clues there. I missed the celebration of your life and am sure there were lots of stories and laughter. You guided many of us through our Masters in reasearch, fought hard for the continuation of this programme and other fringe courses, always with dignity and held your integrity never giving up. I'm so sorry to hear of this sudden departure from this world, and with many others share condolences to all your family and friends.

I am very sad to read the news of Jenny's passing. Jenny was a wonderful mentor and contributor to evaluation and to the AES. And a wonderful person. My condolences to Jenny's family and friends.

The Zonta Club of Wellington will miss Jenny's expertise as a judge in the biennial Zonta Science Award for an emerging woman scientist at PhD level. Her comments were always perceptive and constructive. She had judged each award since 2004.

Jenny, I will deeply miss your infectious laughter, curious mind and deep support for others. You were and will continue to be a shining light on the value of evaluation in Aotearoa and Australia. I thank you for your support in encouraging me to step into leadership roles in the Australasian Evaluation Society. Your true gift was encouraging us to be more. Thank you - I will deeply miss your guidance and support.
E te rangatira, moe mai ra i roto i te rangimarie
Rest in peace

Many fond memories. So grateful for Jenny's support and wisdom over the years, from my fresh-faced idealistic days as her student through to us working together on different idealistic (but wiser and more grounded) pieces of work in different organisations.

Jenny - rest in peace, you are someone I much admired and enjoyed for your
inquistive questioning, your energy to have conversations and your care and precision in your work. Plus your resilience in the tough times you faced at work. A colleague I highly valued. Let's use your legacy to continue with our challenges and opportunities. I'm richer for having known you.

Jenny and I met while riding the bus to the CBD daily. When Jenny moved to the City, Sharon, another bus mate and I would meet Jenny and we would partake in a couple of Mojito, giggling at how naughty we were out on the town drinking. The news of Jenny's passing is so sad, I will miss you Jenny xx

When I was a young feminist academic at VUW working in an all-male department, Jenny took me under her wing and helped me to achieve my goals. I had a crazily heavy teaching load and could not see how I would fulfil a book contract. Jenny's writing regime saw me rising at 4am to work on the book for four hours before my university commitments began. I was too scared to turn up with no writing done to miss any of the deadlines we set.
Jenny later became, with Allison Morris, one of my PhD supervisors. She was warm, encouraging - and very firm. When I got carried away wanting to trace the patriarchal legacy informing policing back as far as the Garden of Eden, she looked at me, pursed her lips and said, "Jan, I don't think so."
Although I saw little of her in recent years, Jenny will always remain an important and valued member of my feminist herstory and I will never forget her generous support of me - or her wonderful brown knit stockings.
