I am heartbroken, been crying most of the day. How could we know that Camp Cornwall was going to be the last time we saw her. We talked about my Disney holiday, her Disney Christmas tree, Violet and Perranporth, her love of my lemon drizzle and millionaire short bread. We message back and forth about poor baby Violet her hospital result, not doing Christmas as they had hoped etc but no way did I expect this. Jill was such a wonderful giving person like no other and would do anything she could to help. I have never seen such a couple like Jill and Tone to be so right for each other. Tone has lost his soul mate, the 4 paws the most wonderful mum and we have lost another very dear friend.


Miss you already Mrs Smifff

Such dreadful and sad news - it is so hard to believe that Jill is no longer with us. Tone and Jill were such a devoted couple, full of love for everyone be they two or four legged. I too have been looking at photos of those early days in Cornwall all day. Remember all being there the day that Kaths photo was taken. I think we will all have wonderful memories of her.

Sending love to Tony and the beards

I haven't been on here for such a long time but needed to after seeing the news on FB

I'm sat here in tears in a state of shock

Jill was one of the most amazing people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.

I am so sad to hear of her passing

I havenít been in touch with anyone for the past few years so this news has come as a terrible shock, canít believe Iím actually writing this. Remembering those early years at camp Cornwall and Crufts, Jill welcomed you into her heart, I was so nervous about meeting new people but Jill made it so easy. She was just that kind of person, remembering the good times and the laughter.
She will be greatly missed by everyone.
Heartfelt condolences to Tony x She was one in a million

Got up early to this news and feel so sad. Loved her. Feel so awful for Tone and all the lovely beards. Such a beautiful soul. Thank you Jill for being a friend to us and to all animals. Will miss you. XXX

I can't believe that our lovely Jill has gone.
Such a beautiful person, an absolute joy to know, so generous and giving, so clever with her writing so gifted with all of the great things that she could make and also so comical and so nice.
Our thoughts and our hearts go out to you Tone, bless you.
R.I.P Jill, like so many hearts mine is broken today.
Luv Ya xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I could hardly believe this awful news yesterday, although I was growing increasingly concerned at not seeing any recent postings from Jill but didn't like to enquire about her health at this time. Sad To Tony I send my heartfelt condolences, and to all Jill's close friends a big hug. Hold on tight to your memories of somebody who was so special, and I know I will always think of Jill when I look at the beardie pieces she made for me. She will be much missed. Sad RIP Jill. XXX

I am stunned and speechless. Have just seen the unacceptable news on her Facebook page and still can't believe it yet.

I just had to come back 'home' to where it all began for me and for many of us.

Jill was always part of the welcoming committee when I joined Just to find out if owning a beardie was the right thing for me.

Well here I am again, hoping and praying that Jill has made it to the Rainbow Bridge to be welcomed by a whole host of familiar beardies that have gone before us. I know my dear Dunsley is in very safe hands now and I'm sure many of you have had similar thoughts about your own beardies who are waiting there.


It still wont sink in, we were only chatting a couple of days ago about her treatment and just how similar our diagnosis were, even compared scars. I felt sure, just like me, she would kick this dreadful disease to touch but it wasn't to be.

Yet again a reminder to me to make every single day count.

Words so true, Jill has been a friend to so many of us, I was looking out last night and saw a bright shining star and thought Goodnight Jill , I guess thatís you watching over us now, the brightest star in the sky.
Like you Annie , I am sure Panda is there with all our loved beardies waiting to meet our very own Beardie mom.

💜💜💜

I really don't know what to say. I was stunned when I heard this awful news, my heart goes out to Tony.

As many of you have said they were a loving and kind couple, and not just with regard to beardie matters.

When I found myself having to make a home in Wales at very short notice they gave me very welcome support, on one occasion with Jill looking after Millie all day while Tony first took me to Ikea and then sat there for hours while I sorted out furnishings for my new home.

Sleep well Jill, you will always be with us.

Joy and Millie

The posts here and on Facebook show just how much everyone loves Jill. I remember the welcoming hug and smile when I met her at Crufts a few years ago, she was so happy and smiley surrounded by her many friends from the Beardie world.

Everyone will miss Jill so much, even those of us that only met her once but loved reading her posts, sleep tight Jill xxx

Have to agree with Annie on coming back to where it all began. Such a lovely group when we joined and found so much love and support from members including Jill who we incredibly went on to meet in person along with so many other lovely people - some now also no longer with us. Love is with Jill and thoughts so much with her beloved Tony and beardie family who were at the centre of her world xx

I on this morning and this news and have spent the whole day in shock.

I'm devastated. My heart goes out to Tone and all her family.

You were all so lucky to have met her. I felt like I had. She sent me little things that she'd made which I still have, and will always will.

I'm just so shocked and sad. Thinking of Tone, and family xxxx

Had to come here, too, where we first met so many years ago, then in person. Some of you will remember we all did that cyber family thing. Back then Jill was my cyber sister, and ThingyJane. Am so shocked and saddened, like everyone. Didn't know she was so ill. How unfair it seems once again, taken far, far too soon. Can't stop thinking how upset and confused her hairies must be...and how utterly lost Tone must be feeling. Night Godbless xxx

Such a very sad time. I didn't go on the holidays many of you shared, I only met Jill the once at Crufts when a shopping bag was thrust into my hand by Jill & Sandy, but we would have a chat through messenger once she turned to Facecloth, that feels such a long time ago when she wouldn't venture on it and now it feels like everyone from all over the world, has been touched by this lovely lady with so many messages of love and support for Tony. I feel numb, her happy, bubbly face shines from so many photos, it doesn't feel real. Sleep peacefully Jill x

I am shocked, only met Jill a couple of times, but she was just such a lovely person. Will miss seeing her at Crufts. Hoping she is now with baby Violet and having a good natter with Sue, another wonderful person who is missed

Sorry I am so late posting. Internet problems.

Shocked, stunned, devastated, that doesn't even come close.....

Sorry, there just are no words, only tears.

Love, hugs and sincere condolences to Tony. Xxx

Have just read this and cannot believe it. Jill was so kind in every way and so many Serbian dogs owe her so much. This is absolutely heartbreaking. Sincere condolences.
