QFAS members were greatly saddened to learn of the death of Angela Howard, founding member and much loved Clerk of QFAS, just one day before our 2020 autumn conference. Diagnosed with suspected cancer early in the year, her operation was delayed by the COVID lockdown. When she was at last admitted for treatment the cancer was deemed inoperable, so Angela prepared for her departure for another place.
During the online autumn conference QFAS members shared their memories of Angela and paid tribute to her many achievements for QFAS over the years, the most recent being the new anthology of Quaker spiritual experience, The Life That Never Ends. You can order the anthology from our Books and literature page, and some of our memories of Angela have been recorded during the AGM on the conference DVD. We miss her greatly but draw comfort from the knowledge of the great adventure she is now pursuing in the life beyond.
