Celia Wilmore -1933-2020

Posted on in Misc

    I am very saddened to report that club member Celia Wilmore has died having contracting the Covid-19 virus, she was 87 years old.  Celia joined Tanglewood back in March 1993 and attended over 1,000 club nights with a percentage rate of 91%.   Despite her severe physical disability she was always happy and cheerful and we will all miss her terribly.

   Celia was in Hillingdon Hosp. and died on March 28th.  Her mother died when Celia was about 10 years old, her father served in WWII so Celia and her brother were separated and sadly completely lost touch with each other, it was nearly 50 years later that his whereabouts became known and they were reunited.  What is really sad is that her funeral was on April 29th at Ruislip Crematorium and no-one was allowed to attend. Such a sad end to what was a very difficult life for her.  On behalf of everyone at Tanglewood I offer our sincere condolences to her family and friends.
