  5. Can anyone please fill me in as to any details re Sybil’s illness. I had been trying for ages to contact her and left several answerphone messages to no avail and then the number was discontinued. I’d also left a note in her Wilmslow letter box and am so upset I didn’t know a thing about her death.

    I knew she had some treatment in London as she had phoned to thank me for insisting she go to the doctor but nothing at all that it was so serious.

    My husband had known Sybil since teenagers and I’d known her since I married in 1060. We regularly went out for meals together.

  6. Hi I am Sybil’s god son and would like
    to speak to any of Sybil’s friends who like to share
    Any memories of her I am happy to talk on phone
    Or via email

  7. Replying on behalf of my wife Debbie, Geoff Popes daughter (Sybil’s cousin) She went for lunch with Sybil in April and Sybil mentioned she was going in hospital in London for some treatments and would be out of action for a few weeks. We have tried to contact her at her London address and also sent a letter as we could not get a reply. We have just found out tonight about her passing. We are sorry, please pass on our condolences to the rest of her family.
