Edwina Strachan, class of 1997

It is with great sadness that we share with you news of the sudden death of former pupil, Edwina Strachan (class of 1997) in Geneva, where she lived with husband, Paul Thomas and children, Fraser and Isla.

Edwina loved her time at The High School of Glasgow so much that it shaped her identity as a proud adopted Glaswegian for the rest of her life. In Geneva she was a senior manager for Procter and Gamble and engaged, quietly but effectively, in international charitable work as well.

A small funeral service and burial took place at Edwina’s local Catholic Church of St Maurice in Sauverny, France on Monday, 12th April. Edwina lies beside the church, facing forever the sun and the view of Mont Blanc which she loved so much.

At this devastating time, the thoughts of the High School Community go out to Edwina’s family and friends.
