So sorry to hear about the loss of one of the 'REAR' Scientists - a Systematist (Taxonomist).
May her soul rest in perfect peace!

  Jennifer Anne (Jenny) Chappill 1959-2006

  (Apologies for cross-postings)

  With great sadness, I am sharing with you the news of the death of the
  Australian plant systematist Jenny Chappill last Tuesday evening (Western
  Australian time). Jenny trained with Pauline Ladiges at the University of
  Melbourne, Australia, before undertaking a postdoc at Harvard and moving to
  Western Australia.  Many of you will know her from her time there and at the
  University of WA, as well as her multiple visits to Kew and other herbaria.
  Most recently, Jenny worked on the systematics of legumes, specially the
  Australian genus Jacksonia. She taught at both undergrad and postgrad level
  at the University of Western Australia, supervising a series of PhD students
  working on groups that included  Malvaceae, Proteaceae, Stylidiaceae &

  A funeral service will be held at the crematorium at Karrakatta Cemetery,
  Perth, Western Australia, at 2.30 pm on Monday August 14. Jenny's family has
  requested that people do not send flowers but instead make a donation to an
  organisation for cancer research. Messages for the family may be sent direct
  to me (k.lemson at ecu.edu.au).

  With respect and regards
