Lady Cook, 1924-2018

We’re sad to report that Isabell Cook, widow of our former Master Sir Alan Cook, died on 30 May. She was in her 94th year, and had been in failing health for some time – but many at Selwyn will remember her in later years as a regular chapelgoer, and as someone who maintained an interest in the wellbeing of the college and especially in its music. She enjoyed returning to the Master’s Lodge, where she had supported Alan so well, for a 90th birthday tea with her friends in 2014.

Lady Cook, 1924-2018: may she rest in peace.
