Colleagues will be sorry to learn of the death, on 29 July 2022, of Linda Tate, member of the Cleaning Services Team.
Linda worked for the University for 34 years. Full of character, she was a well-liked member of the team, having a great rapport with staff and students alike. A massive fan of Barry Manilow, she was delighted to see him in concert at Leeds Arena a few years ago. She had a heart of gold and would help colleagues if needed, coming to work for the friendship rather than the salary. She was hard working and diligent, and always gave her best to the tasks she was assigned. She will be very much missed by everyone who knew her.
The funeral service will be held at 10.45am on Friday 19 August 2022 at Lawnswood Crematorium, Otley Road, Adel, followed by a wake at Edmond House, East Park, 95 Pontefract Lane, LS9 9HW. The flag on the Parkinson Building will be flown at half-mast in Linda’s memory on that day.
