"I shall always be grateful to Cabrini for watching over my beloved Jack.”
Jack and Sheila Jenner’s great adventure together began in 1965 when they set sail for Australia. Some might say it never stopped. Here 94-year-old Sheila shares her story:
“After my marriage to Jack in England, we decided to take a big leap forward and sailed to Australia in 1965. We were amazed at the vastness of such an ancient land.
We were welcomed by my father’s brother and his wife and some of my numerous cousins. Jack spent most of his working life specialising in the area of supply and purchasing, where he developed considerable expertise and skill, and eventually retired as a self-employed consultant on various major projects.
We loved living in Melbourne, “a CathedralCity”, and I became an employment officer for a secretarial college, and then followed a secretarial career until 1986.
I can truly say that our marriage was one made in heaven, but sadly, Jack later contracted bone cancer, and after caring for him for five years, he eventually died in 2006 in Cabrini Hospital.
There he received great care and urgent attention. I shall always be grateful to Cabrini for watching over my beloved Jack.
That inspired me to leave gift in my Will to Cabrini. That was how much I appreciated the loving care that Cabrini took in looking after Jack. And I hope that this gift will make a difference in every way with health conditions there.”
Sheila Jenner is using her legacy to fight bone cancer. Thank you Sheila.
