We are sad to announce that Joyce Rudrum passed away on 16th May 2009. Joyce was an Occupational Health Nurse at Stanton Ironworks. She had been a member of SOHSA since 1993 and served on the committee from 1995 until last year when she was elected a Life Member of the association.

Joyce regularly attended meetings with Jean Headleand and together they started the Annual Nurses Study Day which since has grown into the Annual SOHSA Conference.

Joyce will be sadly missed, she was an active member of the committee and one of the first women to serve. Her commitment and enthusiasm for promoting Occupational Health in the workplace has inspired many and she has helped countless members of the association through her dedication and hard-work.

Joyce successfully conquered her battle against cancer over the past four years, but recently suffered from tiredness due to a salt deficiency which could not be treated. Joyce passed away peacefully in her sleep after being admitted to hospital.

Our condolences to Joyce’s family, friends and work colleagues - Joyce will be missed by all who knew her.
