Obituary: Yvonne Brindley

Yvonne Brindley, the Department’s Clerical Assistant, died on 26th September, aged 54. Yvonne was one of the longest-serving members of the Department, having joined us in November 1990. During her time here, she was responsible for office supplies, student inquiries, all of our dissertations and other publications, and - most importantly - was a friendly, welcoming face in Reception, the Department’s interface to members of other departments, visitors to the University, and to literally hundreds of students over the years. She was a lovely person on whom one could always depend for a smile or for support when times were hard: it’s perhaps not surprising that no less than 22 of her colleagues, both past and present, attended the funeral at Grenoside Crematorium on 5th October. We shall miss her greatly.
