Death of Rachel Heery

It is with great sadness that we report that Rachel Heery, former Deputy Director of UKOLN, died on Friday 24 July, after a long-term illness. Rachel joined UKOLN in 1995, and led the R&D Team and later became Deputy Director until her retirement in 2007. Our thoughts are with all Rachel's friends and colleagues, but above all her family.

Messages of condolence can be sent to Ruth Burt, Office Administrator, UKOLN, University of Bath, Bath, BA2 7AY, email: who will pass them on to Rachel's family. The funeral will be held at St Bonaventure's Church, Egerton Road, Bishopston, BS7 8HP on Tuesday 4th August, at 10.00am. Donations can be made to St Peters hospice

A tribute to Rachel Heery from her UKOLN colleagues.
