It seems ironic, that nearly 25 years later she would die during the same exhibition where news of her collapse made for a very subdued party being held for the International Packaging Press Organisation (IPPO). But she would not have approved of this, as she would have wanted her IPPO colleagues and packaging industry friends to celebrate her life, rather than mourn her passing.
