Mrs Rydqvist's smiling face could be seen around the school from 1964 till 1968. She was in-charge of the catering for the boarders and resident staff during this time. In 1970 she and her husband left India to join their children in Melbourne, Australia. She had many happy years in her new home before taking a fatal fall in her home and passed away 3 days later from her head injuries. She will always be remembered as a wonderful mother and is greatly missed by all who knew her. Mrs Rydqvist is survived by her husband William and children, Larry, Priscilla, Bonny, Daphne and Betty.

She was a wonderful hearted lady and I can remember the time when we went to steal condensed milk from the larder and I got caught out. She gave me a real mouthfull and then slipped a tin in my hand behind Fr. Coleman's back.

I have only fond memories of Mrs. Rydquist and her family because she was always so loving and caring, and she spoiled us rotten.

Thanks to her delicious meals on the School Menu, SXH boys were probably the only  children on the planet who loved school dinners.

My heart chokes and wells up with tears as I pay this tribute to her because I realise now how much she meant to her family, her friends, our school, and to us individually.

It is an honour and a privilege to have known her.  This world is a much sadder place without her.
