Mrs Yvonne Pye

It is with great sadness that we report the death of Mrs Yvonne Pye, a Foundation Fellow of Harris Manchester College who, with her husband Graham, supported several building projects within the college, as well as our students, Fellows, and staff. Mrs Pye died peacefully on Saturday 23rd January, while staying with family.

Yvonne and Graham, who died in 2009, were instrumental in the College’s development for many years, and Yvonne continued this work after Graham’s death. It was always a joy and privilege to welcome her to College, and spend time with her. She will be much missed by all of us.
We have offered help and support to the family in honouring Yvonne Pye’s contribution to college life; and our thoughts are with her family and all who knew her.
