Shelley Walmsley

Colleagues will be sorry to learn of the death of Shelley Walmsley, former Student Education Officer. Her colleagues have contributed the following tribute:

Shelley was a vibrant, warm and well respected member of Student Education who made a difference to all she worked with through her vitality and positive approach to work and life.  Shelley worked at the University of Leeds for thirteen years: her first eight years were spent in the Business School, transforming Student Support, and she then moved to manage the largest single School SES resource in the University, the School of Medicine, as the School Education Service Manager.  Alongside her successful career, Shelley was a loving wife to Pete, a proud mother to Olive, a keen sportswoman and an active Justice of the Peace. Never one to waste a minute, Shelley lived life to the full, always with a wonderful smile which we will never forget.

A celebration of her life will be held on Monday 26th February at Rawdon Crematorium, Leeds Road, LS19 6JP at 2.20pm; followed by refreshments at Café Sylva, Louis House, Princes Avenue, Roundhay, LS8 2FA from 4pm. 

The family would like to request no flowers but would respectfully request donations in lieu of flowers to St.Gemma’s hospice who provided exceptional care for Shelley and continue to support her family. Donations can be made via www.fullcirclefunerals.co.uk/donations or at the Crematorium.

For catering purposes could you let either Terry Owens or Angela Tattam Know if you would like to attend.
