Auntie Gill was the best Godmother and Auntie I could ask for.

For all those who knew Gill you will know that her personality was infectious. She had a charisma that would motivate those around her.

We have all been inspired by Gill’s love of life, her family and friends and the community around her as expressed through her many selfless acts – being a blood donor through her life and opting to donate her organs. I cherish the two occasions we competed in the Women’s Race for Life where Gill showed me the importance of charity (and the importance of training to compete in a run – don’t just show up or you’ll get a stitch!).

Gill had such a love for everything in life. She loved to go on long walks with her friends and all of the dogs. In particular, I recall a time Gill and her best friend Julie (my Mum) walked over 20 miles from Warrington to Frodsham in 4 and a half hours. If she wasn’t out walking and talking you could find her in the kitchen baking. I personally cherish the years of tradition we had of Christmas baking. A tradition started over 24 years ago which we all eagerly looked forward to every year.

Gill was such an inspiration to all. Her untimely departure has reminded me of the importance of embracing each moment and to grasp every opportunity. I have decided to take the leap - in honour of the love and energy she provided us all, I am going to complete a tandem sky dive on 08/04/23 with the Black Knights skydiving centre. The proceeds will go to the Walton Centre which is where Gill was looked after impeccably so they can continue to provide the best service possible to all.

If you are able to please donate and even more precious would be to leave a message or a story of Gill in the comments.
