FORMER pupils and family have remembered a retired teacher who overcame adversity to inspire children to achieve their dreams for more than 40 years.
Gillian Thomas, who has died aged 79, was left with a deformity in her arm after a medical accident when she was a baby, but she did not let it stop her achieving what she wanted in life.
The Croxley Green resident became a teacher and even achieved her own dream of becoming a professional dancer, despite being told it was not possible. Former pupil Charlotte Simpson, now a social worker in adult mental health, paid tribute to Ms Thomas saying she would not have succeeded in her education without her influence. She said: “Without Gillian’s guidance, compassion and influence from a tender age, I would never have been able to succeed in my education and later, my career.
But in later life Ms Thomas was very proud to dance at Watford nightclub Baileys and performed alongside dancers much younger than herself. Most of Ms Thomas’ teenage years were spent in hospital having operations to make her arm as usable as possible. Ms Thomas became a teacher straight after finishing school in the 1950s, teaching first in London and then in Watford.
She worked in various schools in the town, mainly teaching reception class, and was an infant teacher at Chater School from 1982 to 1990.
Ms Thomas lived in Carpenders Park and later Lewes Way, in Croxley Green, where she lived for 45 years.
Ms Thomas enjoyed music, and went regularly to Amersham Jazz Club in the 1980s with friends. Ms Thomas’ funeral will be held on Friday, October 16, at West Herts Crematorium at 2.20pm.

Feiern Sie oder Parteiplakat mit den Daumen oben und steigen Sie im Ballon auf Informationstext, Band und Musik, Vektorillustration. It’s Chriiiiiiiiiiiiistmas, Merry Christmas to those of you around the world that celebrate it, Merry Whatever to those of you who celebrate something else, and Merry Bah Humbug to those  that celebrate nothing….are we done?
Before we begin I’d just like to share this picture below, not only for my brother Michael and sister Michele but for everyone who has lost someone and will be thinking of them even more so today. There won’t be celebrations in our house as such, but I’m not about to rain on anyone else’s parade and I hope you all have a Merry Christmas & a wonderful time.
Then I thought, it was only fair I had a quote from my dad, but the only thing my dad says a lot of is “Don’t Get a Tattoo”……..surely I didn’t? Norwegians believe that Christmas Eve coincides with the arrival of witches & evil spirits so they hide all the broomsticks….as this is my mothers only form of transport for delivering the presents I’m guessing she’s not going to be too happy? So while its an electric human car you can still peddle it like a bike to get up to automobile speeds of 100 mph, The inventor Rich Kronfeld wants to get it licensed as a fully high speed veichle and is currently trying to sort this out, as at present the government consider anything less than four wheels to be a motorbike. Christmas is a season not only of rejoicing but of reflection and for some it can be a difficult time. At the start of December IiME were very proud to be invited to give a presentation on the charity’s crowd funding success at a conference organised by the Institute of Food Research (IFR) in Norwich.
Invest in ME is a small Charity with a BIG Cause and together with our supporters we are making change happen. Invest in ME would like to take this opportunity to thank our Big Hearted supporters for their courage and for giving us all hope. Right, that’s me done,  I’m off to open my prezzies, so have a super day, make the most of family and friends while they’re still here to love and I’ll see you back here next Friday. After an accident that caused the deformity in her arm when she was 18 months old, she was told she would never be a professional dancer.

She would spend her own money on books for the children and put her heart and soul into teaching them with particular interest in reading and writing, nature, art. But even when she was in the care home Watermill House for two months before she died, despite being unwell, she was loved by many of the people there.

Een lange geschiedenis die begonnen is als rijtuig bouwer en uitgegroeid is tot een van de meest moderne en luxueuze dealer bedrijven van Nederland met de prestigieuze merken Jaguar, Land -en Range Rover reeds meer dan 70 jaar. ME is a cruel and awful disease which inflicts great hardship on patients and their families. Research at IFR and University of East Anglia is ongoing and expanding and the first IiME-funded research paper on B cells and ME was recently published by the team at UCL. Hope lies in dreams, in imagination, and in the courage of those who dare to make dreams into reality.
Yet the imagination of the Let’s Do It For ME (LDIFME) team in creating new ways of raising awareness of, and funds for biomedical research into ME has been inspirational and has shown what can be achieved by a small but dedicated team of volunteers who are passionate about their cause and follow their heart.
I want to send you and your family best wishes for a lovely Christmas Day and for a better year in 2016. I want to send you and your family best wishes for a lovely Christmas Day and for a better year in 2016.
