In Memory

Linda Hillion

20 Aug 1950 - 26 May 2018

Linda (Lynn) Hillion was a wonderful wife to Barry Hillion, mum to her only daughter, Louise Greenaway, little sister of Janet Sweeting and John Gilmore and Mother in Law to Martin Greenaway.

In the early hours of Friday the 2nd March Lynn was taken into West Suffolk Hospital after battling with respiratory issues due to having flu. On the 12th March Lynn was in theatre for 2hrs and was placed onto a specialist ECMO machine and transferred to Royal Papworth Hospital. Whilst at Papworth further tests were carried out and Lynn was diagnosed with ARDS (Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome), Influenza and Viral Pneumonia. After a long brave battle unfortunately on the afternoon of the 26th May Lynn lost her battle and passed away peacefully with Barry, Louise and Martin by her side.

The Critical care staff were and are truly amazing and as a family we cannot thank them enough for all that they did for Lynn, they went above and beyond and were battling for her and with her to try and help her fight the awful respiratory issues that she had.

We have made a decision and decided as a family to set this in memory page up for Lynn as a legacy and also a thank you to all the staff. To show our appreciation we would like to raise money for Papworth Hospital Charity and would appreciate any donations no matter how large or small, for what we feel is a well deserved charity and to help the hospital to be able to help other patients and families like they helped Lynn and her family through what was an extremely difficult and emotional time for all involved.
