A Farewell to Eileen Stamper (1920-2017)

We were saddened to hear that former member of staff, Miss Eileen Stamper, passed away aged 97 on 24th December 2017.

Eileen taught Latin Scripture and Greek at Sheffield High School from 1950 to 1962. Whilst teaching here, she was one of the first members staff to have a car, an Austin 7 and she used to put a blanket over the engine in winter.

Eileen continued to be an active member of the school community after leaving and became a member of the Sheffield High Old Students’ and Staff Association. She was a regular attendee at the school’s birthday celebrations in March each year and always enjoyed meeting pupils and talking to them about how school was when she taught here and comparing to now. Eileen’s grandmother also attended Sheffield High School.

Her funeral is on Thursday 18th January at 2.30pm at St Mark’s Church in Broomhill. Rather than flowers, if you would like to make a donation in her memory please make cheques payable to “The Children’s Hospital Charity” and send it to Adam Heath, John Heath & Sons, 14 Earsham Street, Sheffield, S4 7LS.
