Lady Soames in 1942

Churchill College is deeply saddened to learn of the death of the Lady Soames, an Honorary Fellow and daughter of our founder.

Mary always took a keen interest in the College and until very recently was a regular attendee at our Founder’s Feast and on many other special occasions. She cultivated and charmed successive generations of Fellows, students and staff, supported the growth of the College, and both contributed to and used the collections of our Archives Centre. She was a totally committed patron and a wonderful person, and will be greatly missed.
