Obituary: Gillian Comins

Gillian Comins, our much loved neighbour and friend, died on November 15 2019 after a short illness.

She was born in 1933 and grew up in Gloucestershire. She attended Cambridge University, where she read economics.

After university, she pursued a career in market research.

She came to live in Sudeley St  in 1968 , and her house became a hospitable centre for her lively social life.

Gillian was a  knowledgeable owner of racehorses, or at least legs of them, and an indefatigable traveller, latterly becoming fond of  cruising the northern seas around the Scottish coasts and beyond. She loved many  kinds of music, and was a keen opera goer. And she  very much liked  popping up the road to see an afternoon movie.

She was a supporter of Living Streets, Islington Gardeners, and was a long serving, very committed  and popular member of the Committee of the Angel Association, where she was secretary for a number of years.

She will be greatly missed by her many friends in N1.

There will be a memorial service for her at St James’ Church, Prebend St, at 2pm on 15 January and all are invited.
