    Passing of Marian Donaldson

    It is with sadness that we inform you of the death of Mrs Marian Donaldson, wife of Dr David Donaldson (Headmaster 1973-87).  Dr Donaldson died earlier this year.  Mrs Donaldson’s daughter, Fiona Tompson, writes to say;

    “My mother Marian died peacefully on Sunday at her nursing home in Cornwall, where she received exceptionally good and affectionate care and where my sister and I could visit her every day until the end. My mother Marian had cancer for a short time and was cared for in The Beeches Nursing Home, Hayle, Cornwall, where she died peacefully on Sunday 8th May. Both parents left their bodies to medical research and very much did not want funerals, so the family will just remember them privately.”

    The School sends all our best wishes and thoughts to Fiona and Alison at this very sad time.
