Dorothy's Obituary and Family Thanks

Dorothy Tyler (née Newstead)

June 24th, 1911 – January 18th, 2011

Dorothy Tyler, educational publisher of Church Road, Hanwell, has died suddenly in her hundredth year, of heart failure after a fall. She was daughter of William and Nell Newstead of Keinton Mandeville, Somerset, and widow of David William Tyler, educational publisher of London. Dorothy (Doff) had a full life as a teacher, mother, co-founder of the non-profit publishers: Pictorial Charts Educational Trust, social activist, volunteer, gardener, sculptor and musician.

After her husband’s early death in 1969, she took over as director of the company until her retirement at age 70, when she volunteered with the elderly, and as archivist at the Gunnersbury Museum until 2008, and also took up playing the cello and sculpture in a variety of media. She has been actively involved in community organizations over the years and was a founder member of both the Hanwell Preservation Society and the Brent River and Canal Society.

The funeral was held at Mortlake Crematorium, Wed, Jan 26th, 2011. Her indomitable spirit will always be an inspiration to us all.

"Dorothy's family would like to thank everyone for their messages of condolence, which have been received from across the world"
