Jenny Kisler, Rupert Artist
30th July 1935 – 18th May 2020
It is with sadness we have to report the death of Rupert artist Jenny Kisler (nee Miles), who contributed 15 stories to the Nutwood newspaper and also titles and half-titles to Rupert Annuals and stories for the Daily Express after Alfred Bestall retired.
Jenny met and charmed many of you when she attended an Annual Meeting with Mary Cadogan, and she also co-contributed to Mary’s ‘Rupert and the Women in his World’, published by the Followers in 2006. Jenny certainly enjoyed the day as subsequent correspondence to me from her revealed.
Jenny was very helpful to me, filling in details of her Rupert career for record purposes, and I remember with pleasure going to meet her and husband Albert in 1999 in their Surrey home to see items from her Rupert archive.
Rupert has lost another valued chum and recorder of his adventures, and our thoughts are with her children Matt and Kate at this sad time.
We hope to feature a more extensive report on Jenny’s Rupert career in a future Nutwood Newsletter.
