Tansy Stowell


We have been deeply saddened and shocked to hear of the death of Walthamstow Hall old girl Tansy Stowell. Tansy died on 25th July following a tragic accident at her New York home. Tansy fell from her very high loft bed and died instantaneously from a resulting head injury, she was 28.

A highly gifted artist, Tansy left Walthamstow Hall at 16 to go to Art College. In recent years, Tansy has been living in New York where she established herself as a milliner. Writing on Tansy's Facebook page, her family said, 'she packed more into her 28 years than most of us will in a lifetime, she truly lived life to the full.' Remembering Tansy, friend, and former Walthamstow Hall classmate, Katie Kevis wrote, 'she was so talented, a real light up any room kind of a girl.'

Our thoughts and prayers are with Tansy's parents, Sally and Stephen and her brother Jonathan and sister Holly.
