Jill joined the Movement for a Better World group in the mid 1970s. She decided to devote the rest of her life to the work. This included 16 years based in Rome as a member of the international leadership team, with eight of those years as Vice-Director. She died on 4 November, 2011.
Jill’s last few years were spent back in Australia as part of the National Group. Despite failing health, Jill continued to work in parishes and to write and plan almost to the day she succumbed to a long illness.
