Hilary Davies Obituary, Death – We have just been made aware of some troubling information, and unfortunately, it comes at an inopportune juncture in the process. Hilary Davies, who had been a member of the group for many years and had sang in the alto section, passed away in the early hours of this morning, the morning of her 91st birthday.
Hilary was one of our closest friends and had sung in the group for many years. She has been a part of the community for a considerable amount of time. She participated in the choir on a regular basis for a considerable amount of her life and it was very important to her. She had kept up her upbeat attitude for a lengthy amount of time, which earned her a reputation for being very approachable.
She was a teacher at Harrow County Girls School, and the younger members of the choir at that school had a very positive reaction to the physics sessions that she led. They look back on the time they spent with her with fondness and a sense of contentment and warmth in their hearts. They remember the times they spent with her.
In 2018, she suffered an attack of double pneumonia, which was a major factor in her choice to withdraw from singing after the sickness. Additionally, she had a history of asthma and allergies, which also played a role in her decision. Despite this, she maintained communication with us and demonstrated that she was still interested in the successes that the choir had achieved.
We haven’t seen or spoken to her as much since she moved, and now that she’s moving even further away, we will miss not only her presence but also the friendship that she brought to the table even more. Her family hails from Swansea, which is situated in Wales, and she herself has Welsh ancestry. Her family has a long history in the area. Since I am at a loss for words, I do not know how to convey to you, Hilary, how appreciative I am for everything you have done because I do not know how to describe it.
