Professor Katrina Honeyman and Mr Patrick Macartney

It is with great regret that we report the death of two colleagues on 23 October 2011.

Professor Katrina Honeyman

Professor Katrina Honeyman had been Professor of Social and Economic History in the School of History since 2008.   Originally appointed to the University in 1979, Professor Honeyman enjoyed an international reputation for her publications on gender history, the history of local and regional industries (notably the textile trades) and the history of child labour.  Sadly, ill-health had compelled her early retirement in July 2011.

The funeral will take place at 2.20pm on Wednesday 2 November 2011 at Lawnswood Crematorium, Otley Road, Adel, Leeds, LS16 6AH.  There are to be family flowers only.  Donations may be made to St Gemma's Hospice and Save the Children through the following justgiving accounts:

The family have indicated that it is not necessary to wear black at the funeral.  Those attending are invited to join the family members at the Lawnswood Arms afterwards.  In order to help the family gauge numbers, those proposing to be at the funeral and gathering afterwards are invited to contact Helen Pickersgill in the Secretariat (tel 34036).

Mr Patrick Macartney

Mr Patrick Macartney was a Teaching Fellow in the School of Sociology and Social Policy, which he joined in 1997.   He was a very popular and respected teacher on courses including the sociology of health and illness, research methods and information technology.

The funeral (at which black need not be worn) will take place at 3.40pm on Friday, 28 October 2011, at Rawdon Crematorium, Leeds Road, Rawdon, LS19 6JP.   There are to be family flowers only.   Donations may be made to Yorkshire Cancer Research, Wharfedale division.   Following the funeral, mourners are invited to join the family at Yeadon Cricket Club.

Obituaries of both Katrina Honeyman and Patrick Macartney will be published later.
