In June 2020 we sadly lost a great friend and trustee who passed away peacefully in her sleep from secondary metastatic cancer.
Elaine had undertaken a lengthy course of treatment for many years and it was gratifying to hear that the cancer had not taken her before she was ready to go and that she had lived her life to the full until she chose when the time was right for her to leave her cherished family.
Her glittering career has been recorded in the BAPOConnect publication, issue 2, May 2020 in a in-depth interview by Sandy Sexton to mark her retirement from PO and in an obituary on ISPO’s ispoint.org news website.
The wealth of knowledge Elaine brought to the OETT table was immense not only from the UK scene but world wide from notable events like the WHO standards group for PO to name but one.
Elaine’s wisdom and insight was given unselfishly for many, many years and this was greatly appreciated and will be sadly missed but loss of her friendship and kindness which was given unconditionally will be a greater loss.
