What a lovely surprise - someone from my era and house actually sent a message!
So pleased to hear from you Tiny; yes I'm alive and well living in Gloucestershire with my family.  I lost my husband over two years ago,so decided to investigate my old school - and see how others from that time are doing. I have sent messages before - but it seems that pupils from the 60's and 70's are more keen to keep in touch.

I am sorry to have to report the sad news of the death  of Sheila Keene, which I saw in the Daily Telegraph.This is what it said:-

KEENE - SHEILA AIMEE, L.R.A.M. Died 20th April, peacefully, ending a
singularly fulfilled life. A dedicated teacher, she enhanced the lives
of countless youngsters who, with her family, wil cherish her memory.
Cremation at Canford,Bristol on Thursday 5th of May at 1.30 p.m. Bright
clothes, no flowers. Donations if wished to the RNLI.

Sheila and I both started at WGS in September 1964, and she had a  great sense of humour, as well as all her musical skills.Although we  were in different houses we became good friends, and often went away  for a weekend when we were not on House duty!  I last saw her at one of the Newbury Reunions. I have been in touch with Joan Webster, who is  spreading the news to Joan McGovern, Esme Ridge, Ailsa (now Bowker),  who will probably spread the news to Jill Emms, Kay Rumney, and  Margaret Copeland. I shall also E-mail the news to Ethel Embley over in  Germany. We were all at WGS in the mid-sixties.

Sorry to hear about Miss Keene - thank you to Miss Kahn for posting the Telegraph announcement.  Miss Keene was my house mistress for three years, and although she appeared to have quite a "stern" aspect, I found her to be fair, sympathetic, and with quite a sense of humour.  She was very understanding, and in spite of the mischief I got up to in the fourth form, I was amazed to find that she put me forward to be Head of House before she left Windsor.  I remember how she would agree to play "The Gollywog's Cakewalk" as Miss Evans walked through the hall at the start of assembly :-) A very talented lady, who enriched many lives.

Some more sad news to tell of a lost Windsor. Lorraine McAinsh who was in Caernavon house from 74 - 77 and lived in Osnerbruck died last week of colon cancer. Lorraine who lived in Bo'ness near Edinburgh was only diagnosed 8 weeks prior was a happy shy lovely person and one of the best friends you could wish for. She was considering coming to the reunion next month when I last spoke to her in March but then kept her illness from me just making excuses about being busy. She leaves a 21 year old son, Stephen who contacted me shortly after her passing.
