Vale Jenny Barnes

Nurse Jenny Barnes, who campaigned tirelessly for Victoria’s voluntary assisted dying law, died on Sunday. Although seriously ill with a brain tumour, Jen (accompanied by Ken) sat through many hours of the parliamentary debates, a silent reminder to MPs of who these laws were for. Her tenacity, and compassion for others, was inspirational. She died in no pain and with the best of care. All of us at Go Gentle are grateful to have known her. We send our love to her husband Ken and her family.
