I was very sorry to hear of the death of Angela, an ARLT member who will be very sadly missed. She was joint editor of the JACT Review for some time, and a lively member of Summer Schools. At her own school she seemed to be involved in a great many activities, notably drama. Her Christian faith must have been a strength to her during her illness – I know that her local (Catholic) church upheld her in prayer. The quotation from Horace has a deeper meaning for Angela than it did to the Roman poet, who looked for a partial immortality only through his works; Angela lives on not only in the hearts and memories of her many friends, colleagues and pupils, but with her Saviour in heaven.
Her death was announced in the Daily Telegraph:
FELGATE.—Angela Susan. Peacefully on 9th April 2005 at Drumconner Nursing Home, aged 55. Former Classics teacher at Talbot Heath School, Bournemouth. Funeral Service at St Aldhelm's Church, Branksome on Friday, 22nd April at 2.30 p.m. followed by committal at Bournemouth Crematorium. Inquiries re flowers or charitable donations to Tapper Funeral Service, Poole (Tel. 01202 673164). Thanks to Oncology Staff of Poole Hospital for devoted care and support. 'Non Omnis Moriar'.
