Mu Wiltshire 1924-2015
Monday 16th February 2015
Mu was the mother of HHB Communications MD Ian Jones and a founding member of the successful professional audio technology supplier. A shareholder since the company was started in 1976, Mu served numerous roles at HHB and was a Company Director for many years. She was also HHB’s first accountant/bookkeeper and retained this role until her retirement from day to day activities in 1989.
During her years with HHB, Mu was very active in attending shows and other industry events. She will be remembered as a gracious woman who welcomed friends and customers with a cup of tea and was known for making late-night meals for crew members after a gig. It is her kindness and friendly demeanour that will be remembered most by the many people in the industry who made her acquaintance.
Mu met her late husband Tony Wiltshire on a walking holiday in the Lake District and the couple were married at the Chelsea Registry Office in 1988. Family life was very important to them both, and they enjoyed spending time with Mu’s three children from her first marriage, Caroline, Fraser and Ian, and their grandchildren Jasmine and Vivien. Together they were very active in the HHB family business, with Tony serving as HHB’s Company Secretary from 1989 until his death in 2009.
Mu passed away peacefully at her care home on 5th February. Her funeral service will take place on Monday 23rd February at 11am at St Mary and All Saints Church, Windsor End, Beaconsfield, Bucks HP9 2JW.
Family flowers only please, but donations in lieu to the Alzheimer’s Society may be sent to: Arnold Funeral Service Ltd., 32 Gregories Road, Beaconsfield, Bucks HP9 1HQ.
