Remembering Shirley Conyers-Ford: 1964-2012

We are deeply saddened to have to report the sudden and unexpected passing of Shirley Conyers-Ford, a much-beloved member of the YPPS family, on Friday, August 3rd. Shirley had been with Yale for 29 years, and with YPPS for the last 7 years of that time.

Colleagues at Yale described Shirley as “a breath of fresh air every day.” She worked at the medical school before moving to the main campus, and co-workers would joke that it took her forever to traverse any medical-area hallway, for Shirley’s fans would “spot her from random offices” and rush out “to reconnect.” Her cheerful smile and constantly upbeat humor have been a blessing to us all over the years.

Shirley’s passing was a great shock to all of us here at Yale Printing & Publishing Services, and to all at Yale who knew her. She will be very sorely missed.
