RIP Peggy Heller

Dr. Peggy Heller was a FYP (Foundation Year Program) Tutor and lecturer at the University of King’s College. She was incredibly smart, well spoken and was very well respected here. Although I never had her as a tutor or professor I admired and respected her. This is a big loss for the College and to everyone who had the pleasure of knowing her.

I Shall Be Released” written by Bob Dylan was my tutorial song in first year and feel it is very appropriate. Dr. Heller administrated my second oral, and while I was struggling with Heidegger she was so sweet and kind. That was the picture I have always had of her. Rest in Peace Dr. Heller. You will be missed.

There is a website up on tumbler called Remembering Peggy Heller where people submit their stories about her. She touched a lot of people.

A memorial service at the University of King’s College Chapel will take place Wednesday June 29 at 2 pm.

Since there are many different versions of this song I have decided to include a couple.
