Later Life Edit
After caring for Chummy's dying mother, Jenny decided she wanted to change careers and work with those at the end of their lives, and announced she would be leaving Nonnatus House and midwifery behind to take up a position as a staff nurse at the Maria Sklodowska Curie Hospital in Hampstead. It was around this time that she met Philip Worth, her future husband who accompanied her as she cycled away from Nonnatus House for the last time.
Jenny's family is never mentioned.
Jenny's friends include fellow midwives Trixie, Cynthia, Chummy and Patsy. Plus, colleagues Patrick Turner and Shelagh Turner, auxiliary nurse Jane Sutton and caretaker Fred. She also works with the Nuns of Nonnatus House including Sister Evangelina, Sister Julienne, Sister Monica Joan and Sister Winifred.
Love Interests Edit

She had a relationship with Jimmy's friend, Alec Jesmond, before he died after falling through an old staircase at his workplace.
She marries a scot called Philip Worth. We only see him briefly, as he appears in young Jenny's last episode.

- "I must have been mad. I could have been an air hostess. I could have been a model. I could have moved to Paris, or been a concert pianist. I could have seen the world, been brave, followed my heart. But I didn't. I sidestepped love and set off for the East End of London because I thought it would be easier. Madness was the only explanation."
