Following the death of Fraser Cowie, we have had further sad news over the past week with the loss of another valued colleague.

Ethel Stewart passed away at the end of last month after a short illness, having served for more than 10 years as an important member of the Museums and Galleries team.

Ethel was a sociable, popular and knowledgeable employee who was committed to her role as a Museum Liaison Officer and to the Council and Aberdeen as a whole. She not only touched the lives of her colleagues, but all of the visitors who benefited from her passion for the city’s museums.

I know Ethel’s loss has been felt deeply by everyone who worked with her and I share in the heartfelt tributes that have been made as well as sending my condolences on behalf of the Council to colleagues, family and friends.
