Deborah Evans (née Fidler)

1949 - 2018
Deborah was a much loved sister and aunt and a true and loyal friend. She was someone who would tell you what you needed to know, was honest through and through and always had your best interest at heart. What you saw was what you got. Her family and friends enjoyed so many fun times together and shared an awful lot of laughter. She was principled and honourable and you could trust her with your life. Before she retired, Deborah was Chief Personnel Officer of Shepherd Engineering Services Ltd (SES); a company to which she devoted almost all her working life. A much loved and respected member of the senior management team, she was involved in the recruitment and training of staff at all levels from apprentices to directors. Her outgoing personality and mischievous sense of humour belied her fierce dedication to her job, and she did not suffer fools gladly. Woe betide any apprentice who thought he could dodge college classes or fail to report to site on time. Her long-running cancer was treated at St James’s University Hospital, Leeds and at York Teaching Hospital, and she took full advantage of periods of remission to enjoy life to the full; travelling to America with her family and to South Africa, and spending time with all her friends in York. Deborah’s final days were spent at the home of her sister, Rachel, and she was cared for with great compassion and dignity by the Hospice@Home nurses from St Leonard’s. It is so hard to accept that she isn’t with us anymore, she is gone far too soon.

An understanding and Kindness towards others that could not be surpassed, she was the Construction Industry's own Mother Teresa, but with teeth, and I loved her dearly for being just that. If I could write one last communication, it would be to simply say "I O U" as I owe her everything and more !

Rest in peace Deborah. You were my first Boss but became a true friend as well. I will miss your cheeky sense of humour, your no nonsense attitude and your love for life! I will raise a glass of your favourite red wine in your memory and will always remember the fun times we had at SES or over chatting over dinner after we both left the company. You will be missed xx
