Death of former colleague
It is with great sadness that the University announces the recent death of Mrs Heather Ward on 5th January 2018.
Heather first joined the University staff in 1948 as Senior Clerk in the University of Durham office in Newcastle until 1956. In 1962 Heather returned as Personal Assistant to the Registrar and Secretary and was soon promoted to be Administrative Assistant first in the Faculties of Economics and Social Studies and Law, and later to supervise the closing down of the Schools Examinations Board office in Sydenham Terrace. In 1965 Heather was brought back to the Registry to be the Administrative Assistant for Science, Engineering and Agriculture and to supervise admission work for these Faculties. Heather was given the personal title of Admissions Officer in 1978, a post she held until her retirement in 1984.
The funeral service is to take place at 2.15 pm on Thursday 18th January 2018 at Darlington Crematorium, Carmel Road North, DL3 8RY.
