In Memoriam – Janet Wilkinson

Jan Wilkinson 15 July 1948 – 12 May 2024

It is with a heavy heart and profound sadness that I share the news of the sudden passing of our esteemed colleague and friend, Jan Wilkinson. This unexpected loss has left us all in shock and mourning.  Jan was not just a dedicated member of our committee, but also a person of great integrity, kindness, and passion.

Many of you will know her, as she was a founding member of Guildford Arts in 1990 and held many different roles including Vice-Chairman, Summer Exhibition, Membership Secretary and Flyer distribution. Over the years, she played a pivotal role in numerous projects and initiatives, always striving for excellence and fostering an environment of mutual respect and support. Her insights and ideas often guided us through complex challenges, and her contribution was a source of inspiration to us all.

Jan was known for her warmth and generosity. She built lasting friendships with many of us, always ready with a kind word, a listening ear, or a helping hand. Her positive attitude and genuine care for others made her a cherished member of our community.

Jan was not only part of Guildford Arts but was involved in the U3a, NADFAS and many other groups. She will be very sadly missed.

During this difficult time, we extend our deepest condolences to Jan’s family and loved ones. Our thoughts and prayers are with them.
