A tribute to Carolyn Weatherstone

Sadly, we have been notified that a member of our Alumni Community passed away last October. Carolyn Weatherstone (nee Hind) was a former student and studied with Guildford High School from September 1948 until July 1956.

Her close friend Jean Vanek (nee Laxton) also attended the school between 1948 and 1955 and speaks of their memories fondly.

“Carolyn and I were friends before we joined the school and met up regularly ever since.”

Carolyn went on to work as a dental nurse prior to training as an occupational therapist. She married her husband John Weatherstone in 1967 and moved to the Isle of Wight where John was already living and working. There was not any occupational therapist vacancies at the time, so Carolyn managed the books for John’s art and gift business until they both retired.

Our thoughts are with Carolyn’s family and friends and may her memory live on within our Alumni Community.
