On Friday 7, during the HMG/CSSI meeting, we learnt that our friend and colleague (from MF) Françoise Taillefer sadly passed away in a ski touring accident in the Pyrenees mountains.
Françoise had been a member of GMAP since 1991. She had been part of basically every e-suite and operational implementation of Météo-France’s NWP suites since the beginnings, as her expertise was remarkably widespread in both the scientific and technical fields.
Over time she had played a significant role in Météo-France’s international collaborations on NWP. She had always been more than willing to give up time for questions and problems forwarded by the Aladin and Hirlam staff, and had been the supervisor of many Aladin scientific visitors in GMAP.
She was appreciated for her extreme kindness, unfailing good humour and constant availability, for her great readiness to comply with problems-of-the day. Besides her endeavor in her professional activities, she was also known for her many personal interests in which she was involved wholeheartedly. It is in the midst of a landscape that she loved to visit so much, that she eventually left us.
We will remember her in our thoughts.
