HILTON, Aimee Olivia

At the very young age of 26, died tragically but peacefully, as a result of a severe Asthma attack on Friday, July 20, 2018, at the ICCU unit at Nelson Hospital. Aimee is survived by her little son Rian, Dad Paul, Mums’ Susan and Claire, brothers Brett and Ben and sister Olivia. Our beautiful girl will be desperately missed but deeply remembered and still loved by so many close friends and family, both here and those who can’t be with her, from the UK. She was a familiar face as a Barista at ZUMO, a job she enjoyed immensely, especially interfacing with the public until her untimely death last week. As a family we have been inundated with so many kind words, wonderful deeds of unselfish help and received unwavering support during this sad time, for which we are eternally thankful. Our lives will never be the same again, but the gift of having Aimee with us for the time we did will always be remembered with deep love, and cherished until the end of time. Love you little mouse, sleep well. Her organ donations have already saved lives…even now, what a girl. Aimee’s celebration service and prayers will be held at All Saints Anglican Church, 30 Vanguard St, Nelson, on Wednesday, July 25, at 1.00pm, following the service, respectfully by invitation only, immediate family and friends ‘‘private cremation” will be held at Wakapuaka Crematorium Chapel for a final farewell.
