We are very sad to report that after a long illness, our dear friend Joan Homewood passed away on the 20th March 2023 aged 87. Joan joined the Society in 1969 and served the Society in many ways, including as magazine editor. Our thoughts go out to Eric and the family. BOS members can read a full obituary in issue #339 (April 2023) of British Origami magazine - click here.

BOS Honours: President, Vice-President and Honorary Member.

Some tributes received so far:

Such a sad news - she was a wonderful bubbly spirit, who always made everyone light up.
She will be missed ❤️ - Vignesh Cumareshan

This is very sad news. I remember meeting Joan at my very first BOS convention when I was just 12. She was the longest serving BOS magazine editor and did so much for the society over the years. Robin Macey

Oh that's so sad. Joan gave me and Dan Mason and Antony Brand lifts to conventions in Birmingham when I first joined the BOS. Lots of lovely memories of Joan.... Tony O'Hare
