Jill Kemp: TBSHS 2008-2016
23 April 2016
Jill came to TBSHS in 2008, after living in Dubai for several years.
She took over from Ian Wickens as Examinations Officer and also arranged cover for teaching staff.
Many colleagues remember her as being detailed and thorough in the Examinations role, and fun and lively in private. Many students will remember her with great appreciation, as she was always willing to help students with their examination entries and re-sit paperwork.
Mrs Kemp leaves three daughters and one grandchild.
She will be sorely missed.
“Very sadly we lost a dear member of our school community yesterday. Mrs Jill Kemp, who had been the exams officer at TBSHS since June 2008, lost her long battle with cancer and passed away peacefully, with her family around her. She has not been in school since last summer, when her health first began to deteriorate, but throughout her time here she made a very significant contribution, mostly behind the scenes, to the effective running of our school. She was a quiet, gentle, hard-working person and will be very sorely missed by her many friends and colleagues at the school. On behalf of the whole school community, I have passed our deepest sympathies to her family at this most difficult of times.”
Mr Reeve, Headteacher
Her funeral was held at Parndon Wood Crematorium on Tuesday 10th May 2016
