Almost £3,000 has been raised in memory of a popular mum who died on her wedding day.
Jennie Yule, 32, lost her battle with cancer on the same day she was due to marry husband-to-be Francis.
Friends and family rallied round the Mid Craigie woman following her cervical cancer diagnosis with funds being raised for her planned wedding at The Ambassador on Clepington Road.
And even after her death, the fundraising continued with her friend Angela Fleming helping to raise £2,670 to put towards funeral costs as well as setting aside money for Jennie’s five children.
Speaking to the Tele, Francis said he was in shock at the efforts in Jennie’s memory.
He said: “It’s honestly been unbelievable.
“To get that amount of support and that much money raised for Jennie is unreal.
“I’m sure Jennie would be absolutely over the moon that this was being done for her.
“Everything that was done while she was here – and now that she’s not – has been amazing.
“Some of the money went towards her funeral which we managed to get paid but some of it is being set aside for the kids which will help them in the future.”
Despite not exchanging vows, Jennie had taken Francis’ surname in place of her maiden name Cameron.
Her health deteriorated in the early hours before the wedding was due and she was taken to Ninewells Hospital where she died a short time later.
A heartbroken Francis, 28, placed the wedding ring on Jennie’s finger shortly after her death.
Writing on the fundraising page she started, Angela said: “We held a fundraiser, bingo night and even did bag packing to help with the cost of everything.
“People kindly donated, held their own little things and brought money in for which she was so thankful. She planned so much and was looking forward to her big day.
“But then she lost her battle on her wedding day, of all days.
“We are putting up this funding page to see if we can all come together one more time for our princess Jennie and give her the send-off she deserves. Any extra will go to her five loving kids.”
Jennie received the devastating news in July that her illness was terminal – having originally been given the all-clear just 10 weeks earlier.
The disease had spread to her liver, lungs, lymph nodes and bones.
Her funeral was held at Dundee Crematorium on September 11, and she is survived by her children Nathan, Kirsten, Aimee, Kayla and Mason.
Following her death, Francis said: “Jennie was my soulmate. We didn’t get to celebrate the day as we had planned, although it will always be our wedding day.
“The one comfort all the family have is that Jennie is now at peace. She is no longer in pain – she was such a strong warrior throughout.
“Everyone has come together as a family and we will ensure that her children never forget how strong she was throughout this ordeal.”
