It is with great sadness to report the passing of our dear friend and colleague Claudette Small.
Claudette joined the Catering Department as Accounts Manager in July 1999, for a brief time went to work in the Finance Division and then returned to work in the Catering Department as the Catering and Finance Office Manager where she was welcomed with open arms.
Claudette was well known to many in Residences and Catering Division, the Finance Division and Security and Estates teams as well as across the wider school.
She had a hugely positive outlook and was a wonderful and spirited colleague. She’ll be fondly remembered for her wicked sense of humour, strong sense of loyalty and determination – she was always there for a chat on any subject.
Claudette enjoyed to travel with her friends at home and abroad and loved working with the girls at the church girls brigade, she was so proud of all her girls. When time allowed she was also a passionate drummer who enjoyed practicing and was learning all the time.
Claudette was an integral part of our catering family, dedicated, loyal and always there to listen to others problems and triumphs, we are privileged to have known her. She will be deeply missed by all she worked with at LSE.
Rip Claudette, such a lovely lady . Will be greatly missed.
To God who gave us life and unto him we shall Return RIP Claudette, Gone but will never be forgotten, truly Genuine.
I’m so sad to here this she was a good friend we always had a laugh and a joke I can’t believe this I’ll miss you Claudette RIP
God bless your soul, Rest in peace.
Claudette, so sad over your passing. Condolences to your family. I am going to miss our chats at the Main Reception. Rest in Peace girl.
I never actually met Claudette and only communicated via phone and email. Ever the professional, she also struck me as a very warm and generous human being. No doubt she will be sorely missed by family and friends. RIP
Really missing you today
Claudette was the first person I spoke to when I started a new job back in 1986. She had a wicked smile, a wonderful sense of humour and a truly kind heart. I’m absolutely devastated to learn the reason she didn’t answer my last couple of messages was because she was no longer with us. RIP, sweet girl xxx.
So sorry to hear of Claudette’s passing.
The last time I saw her was in Debenhams in Bromley and we had a chat which was like the ‘good old days’ at secondary school – funny sense of humour and with that cheeky smile.
May your soul rest in peace xx 🙏🏽
