A grove of trees in the Scottish Highlands

Jacqueline Shane, knowing as Jacqui
(also spelt Jackie, and Jacky),
was a youth organiser for CND,
who worked as Computer professional at Imperial College
until kidney disease forced her early retirement.
She loved gardening and natural history
so health permitting devoted her remaining time and energy
to voluntary work for local wildlife organisations
(particularly in Richmond Upon Thames).
