Gill Williams

It is with heartfelt sorrow, the Trust Board can confirm that Gill Williams passed away after a short illness. Gill died in Ashford hospital, Adelaide Australia, on 1st January 2018. She was admitted on 4 December 17 for treatment on a melanoma, diagnosed on 25 October, only 5 days after first consulting her G.P. Our sincere condolences have been passed on to Peter, Neil, Cate and grandson Rowan. Our thoughts and prayers are with them at this very sorrowful time.

Gill was one of the founder members of the Posh Supporters’ Trust, along with her Husband and former Secretary Peter. They were part of a steering group that established the Trust as an entity prior to the official launch in March 2003. Both Gill and Peter dedicated much of their time to the Trust, working tirelessly and helped us to form a very credible society. Current and Former Trust Board Members, will always remember Gill for her dedication and hospitality when she readily made her home available to us for Board meetings, providing Tea and biscuits without fail. In addition to her active involvement with the Trust as Marketing and Membership secretary, Gill was also very involved with voluntary work for both Sue Ryder and the Peterborough Council for Voluntary Service.

Gill and Peter emigrated to Australia in late 2007 for a well deserved retirement, and to live closer to their Son Neil and his family.

God Bless you Gill. xx   R.I.P.
