In memory of Elizabeth Langford (1929-2009)

 

With great sadness we have to report that Elizabeth (Betty) Langford died peacefully on 11 August 2009 in the Hospice of the Regional Hospital near her home in Leuven, Belgium. About a month ago she had been advised to discontinue all but palliative treatment for her cancer. The discontinuance of chemotherapy gave her a period of considerably enhanced wellbeing and heightened awareness, during which she was able to continue her Alexander teaching, and her final decline was, when it came, mercifully brief and relatively painless. The loving care that she received in the tranquillity of the Hospice was outstanding, and she could not have wished for better.  
Betty’s funeral took place on 18 August, attended by about 35 people, many of them colleagues from the Alexander world.  You can read here the several tributes read at the funeral ceremony.
