Jean was Head of the Typing Pool when we both worked at the British Library. Ever helpful but firm, I remember her guidance to me as a wet-behind-the-ears junior manager on how to get the best out of the service her team provided.
Meeting since then at gatherings of retired colleagues, Jean was always cheerful with a ready smile and a jocular dig. I was more than happy to donate to Dementia Forward in remembrance of such a lovely lady.
