Tributes paid to Welsh charity founder and oldest female skydiver in the world who has died aged 88
Tributes have been paid to a “truly inspiring” woman who founded a Welsh charity and became a record holder for being the world’s oldest female skydiver.
Dilys Price, a retired teacher from Cardiff, has died at the age of 88.
She became hooked on skydiving at the age of 54 after completing her first ever jump to raise money for charity. Over the following three decades, she completed 1,139 solo jumps – including one aged 81 in 2013 which saw her become the oldest ever female skydiver.
Tributes have been pouring in on social media:
Very sad to hear about the passing of the truly incredible Dilys Price. I feel privileged to have met her … she really was one of a kind. An inspiration, full of warmth and positivity and had the most beautiful smile. Rest in peace x
