In Memorium – Sue Gilson

It was with much sadness that we learned of the death of Sue Gilson in April 2017. Sue was a much-loved member of Capel Ladies Club who will be sadly missed by all who knew her. Below is a collection of tributes to Sue, from our members.

Tributes to Sue Gilson (1955 – 2017)

There are so many nice things you could say about Sue and they would all be true.

She was always thinking of other people even until a few weeks before she passed away she was making sure everyone got their birthday cards from the club.

Sue, a thoroughly nice girl, kind, thoughtful and extremely brave.

Always so positive about her cancer, cheerful in the face of adversity, kind and caring especially when I was laid up. Friendly and welcoming at Capel Ladies.

Just a few words about Sue, she was a lovely lady, kind, caring and always willingly offered her help when needed.  She was good company and I feel we are very lucky to call her ‘our friend’. Above all she remained very optimistic and brave throughout her illness. We will miss her.

So sorry to hear the sad news of Sue’s passing, she will be greatly missed by family & friends, please pass on our condolences to Michael.

It’s always a great sadness to lose someone so young and vibrant. It seemed to me that Sue despite her illness was still joyful and fun loving. Life – and death- can be very cruel.

She was a very brave lady.   She had a wry sense of humour.

She always had that lovely smile. She had a mischievous grin.

She was very easy to have a laugh with.

She was just a lovely lady. Nothing was too much trouble for her.

She touched the hearts of everyone. Charming, warm, gentle lady.

Always so helpful on the committee, and very efficient.

Sue had a cheeriness about her, and a forthright and open manner. She was always willing to help with things, and was lively, feisty and sparky – with a cheeky sense of humour!

I will always remember Sue for being the person that made me feel so welcome when I first went along to Capel Ladies. I was very nervous as I walked through the door as I was new to the area and did not know many people but as I entered the library I saw this lady coming towards me with a big smile on her face. She introduced herself and then she started chatting to me and within minutes I was feeling at home. I will always remember Sue for that, she was a lovely person.

Sue my friend, I began to remember not just that you have gone, but that you lived, and your friendship will give me memories to treasure. You will be terribly missed.

Sue was a very genuine lady, what you saw was what you got. A kind and thoughtful friend who had a great sense of humour. She always put others before herself even when she was ill.

We will all miss her.
