Gill Blum R.I.P.

Many of our elder Graduates will be saddened to hear of the passing of Gill Blum.

Gill was Jorgen Blum’s widow and passed away yesterday in her home town of Royston in Hertfordshire, with her son Chris and daughter Jennifer in close proximity. Jorgen Blum was Director of Shannon College of Hotel Management until 1985 and passed away in 2003.  When the Blums moved to England, they lived for a number of years in Haslemere in Surrey before moving to Royston.

Many recent students will recognise the Bust of Jorgen Blum that is on display in the College Atrium since April 2007. Here are some photos of the Blum family and former SCHM colleagues from the unveiling.

She will be fondly remembered by all of the Shannon family who had the good fortune to know her, a kind and generous lady. You can post your condolences to the family in the comments at the bottom of this page.

Our condolences to Chris, Jennifer, Bryan and their families and all who mourn her.

May Gill Rest in Peace.
