Hilda Jackson (1903-2014) validation

The GRG announces the age validation of Hilda Jackson, nee Richmond. Hilda was born on August 19th 1903 in Oldham, Lancashire, England, to William Richmond and Eleanor Richmond, nee Ogden. She had two siblings – sisters – Elsie and Ada. In July 1937, Hilda married Herbert Jackson and went on to have one child, a son named Peter. Hilda worked as the head telephonist for the biggest textile machine engineering company in the world. Sadly, Herbert died in 1972 and Peter, their son, died suddenly in 2004. Hilda lived on her own until she was 102, when after a fall she moved into Werneth Lodge Care home in Oldham, where she passed away at age 110 years, 350 days on August 4th 2014. She had lived her whole life in Oldham.

Hilda’s age was verified by Chris Law and myself, later retroactively validated by the GRG on March 2nd 2016.
