Students and staff received some sad and shocking news this week, as Felicity Tallboy, one of our Learning Resource staff, passed away suddenly on Wednesday night. A special chapel was held this morning to celebrate her life and reflect on the impact she had on our community.
Reverend Fletcher shared some very touching words about Felicity, who had an indefatigable spirit and an amazing energy. Bob Snowden also spoke about Felicity at chapel and he wrote about her passing on his blog.
Today, students were able to contribute their memories and thoughts on a card for Felicity’s family and on a banner in Learning Resource. Many community members also left messages on Facebook.
“My heart goes out to all of you who were a part of Felicity’s life. She was an ever-cheerful face in LR during my time at SMUS and I know she will be deeply missed. Sending love to all of you right now.”
“Our family is deeply saddened by this loss. Her work with her students and the bond she made with them will be missed.”
“What joy you brought to all of us, Felicity. This is a heart-wrenching loss for both students and staff.”
“Such an enormous loss. Felicity was the kindest, most compassionate and warm-hearted of souls.”
