Kerri-Anne Kennerley offers sincere reflections on managing grief

Kerri-Anne Kennerley recently reflected on the changes since the unexpected death of her beloved husband John five years ago.

Marking the fifth anniversary of her husband’s passing, Kerri-Anne shared that grief has affected her in numerous ways.

John, who had a severe fall from a balcony in March 2016, passed away at the age of 78 on February 27, 2019.

The former Studio 10 host dedicated much of her time to caring for her life partner after he was paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair.

In an exclusive conversation with Daily Mail Australia at the Mercedes-Benz Women in Business event, the TV legend opened up about dealing with grief.

Kerri-Anne, who married John in 1984, explained: “It’s just week by week, month by month. You have to work through it and try to stay as logical as possible.”

She also discussed the difficulties of living alone.

“And resilience, I think. I’ve always been a firm believer in resilience. Resilience is one of the most crucial human qualities that should be taught in school from the age of five. If children were taught as part of the curriculum how to be resilient, how to see the glass as half full rather than half empty,” she added.

“I believe we’d have a much better society. It’s just as important as subjects like English and Math.”
