In loving memory of the late Rubylene ''Huldah'' Anthony who sadly passed away on 1st December 2014.

Please feel free to leave a message, a special or happy memory or a photo of Mum.

Rather than having flowers we are hoping to raise funds for the Alzheimer's Society. As you know Mum was diagnosed with this condtion in 2009 although it went undiagnosed for about four years. This disease slowly robbed Mum of her zest for life and she became a shadow of her former self.

Any donation that you are able to make, big or small, will be greatfully appreciated by us and the Alzheimer's Society.

All the details you need from contributing, donating and attending are on this page.

Many thanks,

Shelley, Paul, Darren & Robyn

Aunt Huldah is my great aunt (my grandfather's sister). I visited her in Plan Bay Florida; I believe it was winter of 2006. It was a memorable visit, from the first day we connected and I truly enjoyed her company. I realized that she and I had a lot in common.
She didn't have a car and was popular with the bus driver who called her the bag lady because she always had a lot of bags.
After returning from the supermarket we washed and wiped everything. The milk was rotated. One would be in the freezer that she would place in the fridge for use and the bottle of the fresh one purchased was wiped and placed in the freezer.
I remember listening intently to stories of her many travels around the world and remember that Egypt was one of the most memorable places that she visited. She said the sky looked as though you can reach and touch the stars. I still have a goal to visit Egypt just to have my own experience.
When I woke up she had a cup of tea waiting for me, when we returned from shopping, we enjoyed a cup of tea as well and before bed our conversations were over a cup of tea.
On the way to church there were pebbles of ice outside her door. It was my first time experiencing anyplace that cold. I admired how she carried herself, well dressed with matching gloves. She looked like a royal lady. I too carry myself like a royal lady so we walked like 2 royal ladies to her friend's car.
It was only a few days, but I will never forget them. I have even told my daughter's of my great aunt.
I lost contact and was saddened when grandfather told me that she had passed.
I visited London twice and hoped that I could contact her daughter and family to meet the cousin's I've learnt so much of. I am so thankful that I have found this page.

Just after Mrs Anthony returned to the UK, Shelley brought her to a concert in which I was playing. I went up to meet them both during the interval, and was amazed that she remembered me, even though it had been many years since I last met her, indeed, it would have been while Shelley and I were still at school. She was clear and lucid, and enjoying the music, and it's a lovely memory for me, that Shelley could share that time with her mum. xx
