It is with much sadness that I must tell you that Sue Forder died on Sunday 17 July. Sue underwent major surgery last year and subsequent treatment enabled her to recover and return to her research work and enjoy life with her family. Unfortunately her health deteriorated rapidly last week and she passed away on Sunday evening.

Sue's professional life was centred in Sheffield Hallam University. She was an excellent teacher whose professionalism and dedication was appreciated by the student body. Her research work in recent years has been focused on industrial applications of Mossbauer spectroscopy and she introduced the power of the technique to several industrial organisations within the UK. Sue was a thoughtful and careful experimentalist and was highly regarded by students and colleagues who worked with her.

Sue has been the UK's representative on IBAME for several years and she was particularly supportive of the development of ISIAME. She coordinated the UK Mossbauer community over many years with efficiency and effectiveness.

Sue had marvellous personal qualities. She was honest, full of integrity, and had a great sense of humanity. Her presence within the UK community will be greatly missed and I have today conveyed condolences to her family on behalf of her UK and international colleagues.
