It is with sadness we announce the passing of Queen's alumna Brina Marks who died last week following a short illness.
Some Queen’s girls will always be remembered for the positive mark they make not only on the school but on the lives of others, and Brina was most definitely one of these. She was dearly loved by a wide range of members of the Queen’s community: we valued her wisdom, kindness, warm heart and thoughtfulness.
Brina was working closely with the Alumni Office on revitalising our archive and we are already missing her calm, practical input. It would be truly wonderful now for us to now reshape it as The Brina Marks Archive. If any member of the Queen's community has any experience of or interest in archives or school history we would be so grateful to receive offers of the practical help that is needed, as well as financial support.
Brina was also passionate about education, and ever thankful to have been the recipient of a Queen’s Bursary. After discussions with her family we also intend to maintain her memory in an award or prize.
Therefore to commemorate Brina and her life we invite donations to The Queen’s School Archive and/or the Bursary or Prize Fund. We would also be very pleased to receive email confirmation of gifts, and memories of Brina that we can share to firstname.lastname@example.org
When giving, please use the reference ‘Brina Archive’ ‘Brina Prize’ or simply ‘Brina.'
