Jean Killman

It is my very sad duty to record the death of Jean, wife of Albert Killman, at the end of November.

Many of us will remember Albert and Jean from the days of the former Robert Farnon Society. Albert was instrumental in acting as assistant to the late David Ades and was particularly concerned with matters pertaining to membership of the Society.

Unfortunately, Jean’s health had deteriorated during the last few years; she was eventually admitted to Southend Hospital in October, with severe heart and breathing difficulties, from which she was unable to recover.

Although Jean and Albert no longer made the journey from Rochford to attend our LLMMG meetings, I stayed in contact with them and they made me very welcome in their home on a couple of occasions.

On behalf of the Group, I extend our sincerest condolences to Albert.
