Biography

Susan Louisa Hills Hills-957 was born on September 9, 1905, in Barking, Greater London, England.[1] She was the daughter of Harry Hills and Sue Reeves. As a child she lived for a few years with Grace Barton, a friend of her mother, who had no children of her own. However she later had a daughter and Sue returned home. At first she found it difficult living in a large noisy family, where money was often short, but she soon settled down and took on various jobs in the house. She was sometimes known as Susie as a child, probably to distinguish her from her mother who was always known as Sue, but she was always known as Sue as an adult, when only Australian cousins sometimes still referred to her as Susie. Sue helped in her mother's photography business and learnt tinting which was often done when all photos were sepia or black and white. When Sue's youngest brother was brought home from hospital as a tiny premature baby needing a lot of care, she helped her mother look after him. Sue obtained permission to marry her first cousin Samuel Hills, so she did not change her name on marriage. They were married at St. Mark's Church, Mitcham, on May 6, 1934.[2] and lived in a house nearby. Sue had four children the first one being still born, the others all outlived her. Sue was very shaken in the October 1987 hurricane, when she was trapped in her house for some time without electricity. She could not face living alone after that and went to live with one of her daughters a few streets away. She already had a lot of arthritis in her knees and found walking difficult, and after a time she got multi infract dementia which meant after an attack she would be quite confused for a few hours. She died in her daughter's home in Mitcham, Surrey on November 27,1994.[3] After a funeral service at St. Mark's Church, Mitcham, she was cremated and her ashes interred at the Garden of Remembrance at the South London Crematorium.
