“It comes as a shock to find that someone like Jenny could be killed in such horrific circumstances for doing the job she loved, caring for vulnerable people. Jenny was aware of the risks in her chosen occupation, nonetheless she carried out her work with dedication, compassion, love and understanding for those less fortunate then herself.

“Jenny always greeted you with a smile and had a calming and placid nature about her. She was loved by all her family and friends and her absence will be like a hole in our hearts.

“During this time of sadness we would like our privacy to mourn her death and respectfully request that we are given that time to reflect and remember the wonderful and beautiful person that she was, without any further intrusion.”

A man has appeared in court charged with her murder.
