Former Director of Governance, Colleen O’Boyle has sadly passed away.
Councillor Richard Bassett, Chairman of Epping Forest District Council said:
Colleen’s passing has come as a shock. I got to know her well when we worked together as Cabinet Portfolio Holder and Service Director.
Strong and caring
I was always amazed by her incredible wide-ranging knowledge, and grateful for the help she always offered.
She was a fixture of Epping Forest District Council for over 30 years – a larger than life character who was both strong and caring. She rose from the ranks of the legal service to Director of Governance but was always one of the troops, and her legacy lives on.
Colleen leaves many friends behind – both councillors and staff. At this sad time my thoughts are with her family and friends and my deepest condolences go to all those who knew and worked with her.
