Julia Ionides memorial service
Sadly just before Christmas 2015 Julia died after a fall at a university in Istanbul where we were attending a conference. She was cremated at Shrewsbury Crematorium on Christmas Eve and at her request only the close family were present and her ashes were spread under the apple trees in her garden. Now we wish to remember her life and work.
Julia was well known as the voluntary administrator for over twenty years of the Dog Rose Trust which researched and designed communication systems for blind people. She was also very well known as an architectural historian and author. Many people will have known her as the organiser of the Dog Rose Georgians through which many enthusiasts visited historic buildings. But she was universally known as a lovely, friendly person.
Caroline Morris, her daughter, and I arranged a simple service to remember her life and work and this was held at the church of St Laurence in Ludlow on the 30th of January 2016.
We wish to keep Julia’s extended family going so please keep in touch.
