After junior posts in Manchester, Judith Frances Hornby (née Pickering) accompanied her husband to Toronto, where she worked in paediatrics during his orthopaedic training. The couple returned to Northumberland in 1971, where she enjoyed a period of general practice at the university. She retrained in radiology in 1978 and was a consultant in South Tyneside until retirement. She had a lifelong passion for literature, ornithology, and modern languages, and was well known for her hospitality. After retiring the couple sailed widely in northern Europe and settled finally in Wester Ross. Judith leaves a husband, Roger; a daughter, Stella, an ophthalmologist; a son, Tom; and a granddaughter.
