Family of Hilary Simmons Release Photo and Tribute

The heartbroken family of 59-year-old Hilary Simmons, who sadly died after taking ill in Tesco on Corporation Road in Middlesbrough on Monday 30th April, have today paid tribute to her.

Hilary Hilary’s family said today: “Hilary was a much loved mummy, wife, family member, friend and colleague.

“She was known to all her work colleagues as ‘Tesco mummy’ and was very well thought of and respected in the workplace. So much so, that on Mother’s Day all of the staff contributed to buy her a gift to show their appreciation to her.

“She will be dearly missed by all who knew her, especially by her husband, son, daughter (known as her little girl) and her Yorkshire Terrier, George who she adored.

“We will cherish the memories we have had with mummy and would like to thank everyone who has expressed their sympathies and condolences so far.

“We as a family would like to request privacy at this time to enable us to grieve.”

Anyone who was in Tesco at the time of the incident is asked to contact Cleveland Police on 101, quoting event number 076000.
