Sian Williams Parents

Williams is the daughter of John and Katherine Ress. Her mother was a nurse for 40 years until she died in 2009 of liver cancer. Her father was a journalist, working first in print and later in radio. She revealed in an interview that when her mother died her father enrolled in a cookery school as he couldn’t cook and didn’t want to purchase them ready-meals. “When my mum died, Dad couldn’t cook. Instead of buying ready meals, he enrolled in a cookery course. He enjoyed it so much that he advanced to a Cordon Bleu course. Now he’s doing a degree in modern history.

That’s how he handles life – with a ferocious resolve and a confidence that there’s always something you can learn. I’d like to think that I’ve inherited that philosophy and, at 48, I started a master’s degree in psychology, which I’m just finishing. He is a stickler for grammar and facts. He’d test my brothers and me on history and geography over Sunday lunch. He’d also test us on grammar. For years, I could hear my father stating things such as: “It’s not over 100, it’s more than 100. You must know the difference.” He stands at a height of 1.59m.

I believed I was healthy. I did all the proper things – I was a green tea drinker, a salmon eater, a runner.
