My wife, Nony Ardill, who has died aged 68 from a brain tumour, was a leading human rights lawyer and campaigner for social justice. She was a senior lawyer for the Equality and Human Rights Commission and an adviser to the Commons justice committee. She was also a talented musician and songwriter.
Nony was born in Exeter and brought up in the unconventional, off-grid Dalditch Apiary, near Budleigh Salterton, east Devon, helping her father, Bernard Ardill, tend his 200 hives on Dartmoor. Her mother, Betty Twort, was a potter.
