Hilary was the much beloved daughter of Molly Cheesman and her husband Leslie Blomfield. Hilary was her parents only child. She was was born with cerebral pasly but despite her difficulties would excel, becoming a school teacher. She never married and did not have children.

Molly's only maternal Uncle, Eric Cheesman, had perished in the Gillingham Park Fete Tragedy of 1929. Eric was burned to death in a fire fighting demonstration which had gone horrifically wrong. Hillary's mother, then 6 years old was a witness to Eric's fate that night. Her grandmother, Elizabeth was also present that night.

Sadly one day in 1985 while teaching at school Hilary was taken suddenly ill. Tragically she passed away the following day. Hilary was 36 years old at the time of her death. Hilary died of Megaloblastic anemia, a condition that had gone undiagnosed.
