Death of right-to-die campaigner, Dr Libby Wilson (UK)

Wednesday, March 30, 2016

It is with great regret that Friends at the End announces that its former convener and medical advisor, Dr Libby Wilson died on 29 March in Glasgow. Libby, who would have celebrated her ninetieth birthday in July, had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer several weeks ago but refused any further medical treatment and died peacefully at her home in the West End of the city with her family around her.

The current convener of FATE, Sheila Duffy, a long time friend of Libby's said: "Dr Libby Wilson was a doughty fighter for the rights of the individual, but more importantly a warm, friendly, courageous woman who simply loved people and cared what happened to them at the beginning and the end of their life. She will be sorely missed by all those who campaign for real choice."
