Really tragic news this week of the death of Sheila Hyslop. Sheila was a member of the Dumfries Musical Theatre Company and had recently joined The Stove.

Sheila died in hospital five days after falling from her bike as she delivered telephone books. Police and an ambulance rushed to the scene after receiving reports that Ms Hyslop fell from the bike and hit her head. She was taken to the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh where she was placed on life support as doctors battled to save her. She lost her fight for life on Friday night.

Sheila was born and raised in Dumfries but had lived in Edinburgh and America for many years before returning to the town a few months ago. A popular member of Dumfries Musical Theatre Company, friends there were distraught to hear the news of her death. One said: “Sheila was a fantastic lady, full of fun and a pleasure to watch on stage. It is unbelievably sad.” Another added: “She was beautiful inside and out and I was so happy to have known her.”

  1. Still unbelievable to me that we in this world lost such a precious soul, so pure was Sheila's heart. Utterly driven to be of service, she was selfless at all times. A rare and wonderful being. What a lady. Few compare.
