A former member of staff who worked at the University in the late 1970s and early 1980s has died, aged 88. Elizabeth Whittome - known as Betty Catling - was Administrative Officer for the Centre of Continuing Education (CCE) from 1975 until her retirement in 1982.
She died of a heart attack while on a Diocesan pilgrimage to Lourdes on 27 July. Friend and ex-colleague Rosemary Harris, who was secretary to the then Director of CCE, Professor Manny Eppel, said: "Her funeral was held on 22 August and the full church reflected her many friendships.
"After her retirement, several staff members kept in touch with her and she will be greatly missed."
