Jeanette was the epitome of a 'good' person.
Some people are kind, others generous and many thoughtful.
Jeanette was all of these and much more.
She always put others first, would help anyone, and never had a bad word.
She was a friend to the poor, the lost and the sad.
She never looked down on anybody; the glass was always half-full.
Although she worked very hard, she never pampered herself.
She gave any spare money away, and always bought second-hand.
Status-symbols and ostentation were for others.
She suffered with debilitating illness most of her life but never lost hope.
She remained cheerful and positive to the end.
Even when she knew she only had hours left she still managed to think of others and take care of final arrangements.
We will all miss her dearly.
God must surely have important work for her.

In loving memory of the late Jeanette Morgan who sadly passed away on 8th February 2015

Jeanette asked that, in lieu of flowers, please donate to the John Eastwood Hospice (see link above)
For those in countries where you are unable to do so, please give to a local charity of your choice.

thank you all

I knew Jeannette for a little time when we both turned up to see what was going on in the new branch of the U3a in Windsor (University of the third age) a community self help social and learning organisation. We both agreed that if any groups were going to be established that we would have to dive in and start one ourselves, Jeannette took on a politics subject and I decided on local walks. It wasn't long before the U3a grew bigger, Jeannette was involved in with the committee and marketing and this was alongside other local interests that she had, with which it was difficult not to be swayed into joining in with at times because she would always open up more possibilities. She managed to get back into things putting her illness aside before she finally decided to move away to be with all her family. She leaves lots of happy memories behind her.

A message from Riaan Roest, Jeanettes cousin.

Aunt Penny, Norman, Angie & families and friends
It is often said at the passing of a beloved that the Lord has come to pick the loveliest rose or flower….would it not be fitting today to say that the Lord has come to pick the best avocado pear from the Caversham Farm crop ay Karoi? My oh my, the farm was blessed with such rich, firm, butter like fruit.
It is with sadness that we note Jeanette’s passing but rejoice in the fact that we all have come to know and love a most dear, caring, sincere and unselfish person. Never was it trouble for Jeanette to reach out to someone in time of need, to be a helping hand or be a listening ear…….is it not what the Lord called us all to do?
Fond memories will live for a long time;
Mid 1960’s; a LandRover with Shakespeare family onboard arrived in the Cape for a joint family holiday at Bloubergstrand. Whilst our Dads fished off the rocks and our Mums sunned themselves on the beach, we as kids played in the dunes, frolicked in the waves and searched for “new” coves on the rocky island, care-free days!
Mid 1970’s; Jeanette at UCT, fish-braais, sunshine and beach walks….(not to mention for us bachelor boys to meet Jeanette’s lovely co-lady students)
80’ & 90’s; visiting her in the UK; driving off to some remote area to visit a manor house, lunch and walks in the country side, dinners at her place in Slough where inevitably there would be some hungry faces from Australia, West-Indies or abandoned person from round the corner
2000 onwards; Jeanette as the glue to keep the wide spread family in touch……always encouraging words with little emphasis or her own aches and pains and struggles
Jeanette, we, as the Roest family, salute you as a most loving, God fearing person, every thing that the term “nice” person would describe, thank you for your ever-kindness
May Jeanette’s legacy live on as the sunshine in our daily lives
God’s peace and strength to all
Hamba Kahuhle
Riaan & Lynette; Johan & Antoinette, Rusty and Annette

Jeanette was a very special person. She was kind, generous, brave, great fun to be with and had such a warm smile. No matter what she was going through she always showed so much care for others and tried to do whatever she could to help and advise. I feel blessed to have known her and will miss her friendship.

Dear Jeanette, she and I worked as administrators for the national charity Shelter, she at Slough and I at Ashford, Kent, and we were always there for each other if we needed support. She left for pastures new but we kept in touch and I shall always remember her, not just as a colleague, but as a true and loyal friend with a kind and generous heart. Sincere condolences to her family and friends, she was so brave but now she no longer has to suffer.

I am privileged to not only have had you as a cousin in my life but also a friend. No more pain Jeanette. Give those four old boys a run for their 'cribbage money', they've been waiting for a new challenge - and you get to catch up with your brother, too. As ever, lots of love, Sharon

So sad my dear cousin , remembered as so kind and caring. Deepest sympathy to the family and thank you for the photos of her happy face. Even though I had not seen her for years I still remember fondly our days together in Bulawayo 1978/9 and how kind she was to us when we visited UK in 1991. Rest in Peace

God saw the road was getting rough, and the hills were hard to climb. So he closed your weary eyelids and whispered “peace be thine”. Loving and kind in all her ways … beautiful memories, she left behind. We will miss you dearly Jeanette. You are at peace with your dad and brother now … love to you all.

I was sorry to hear that Jeanette had passed away. I was lucky to have worked with Jeanette for several years and she was always smart and very helpful. A very courageous and nice person.

Sadly saying "Goodbye" to my first and very best friend JEANETTE MORGAN ,nee SHAKESPEARE ex Karoi who passed away in the early hours this morning after a long struggle with cancer, so bravely fought. Her beloved niece Jay Williamson ( a nurse herself) beside her at the "Hospice" in Mansfield, UK. She was living with her mother (Penny Shakespeare), and her sister and brother in law, Angie and Garrie Willaimson. Her older brother Norman Shakespeare and family live in Canada. Jeanette's father, Sonny Shakespeare, was one of the pioneer farmers to open up a farm in Karoi after the 2nd WW. Trevor and Voni Tatham bought "Caversham farm" from them in about 1982/3. The family very tragically lost Larry Shakespeare, Jeanette's younger brother, in the "Rhodesian War" on 21st August 1976.
Jeanette and I became friends in 1963 when we started boarding together at "Karoi Junior School", then on to "Girls High School" (Forsyth House) in Harare from 1969 -1973. Jeanette studied at "Cape Town University" where she graduated with a degree in Computer Science. She left Africa to live in England in about 1983.
Farewell dear friend. R.I.P together with your dad and brother.
Sincere condolences to the Shakespeare and Williamson families

I have fond memories of working with Jeanette. Such a wonderful and caring person. I remember Jeanette contacting me years later as she heard of an earthquake in Pakistan and wanted to make sure my family were safe. Always thinking of others. You will be missed. Rest in Peace

I was very fortunate to work with Jeanette for several years at Unisys - she was kind, thoughtful, conscientious, focused and dedicated in everything she did and with every person she engagedwith. She was an inspiration.
