Photo of Avril at her 90th Birthday in 2013.

Avril Nunn, much venerated and admired in the Betty's Bay community, has died aged ninety two. Avril was educated at St. Cyprian's school Cape Town where she was head girl in her final year.  She graduated a chemist from Rhodes University, where she had met her husband, John. Both pursued careers in the field of chemistry, returning to Rhodes later, indeed Professor John Nunn has a laboratory named after him.
