Today I have very sad news to share with you all - one of our long term members, Mootilda, had been ill with cancer for some time. On Monday 1st September she was admitted to hospital and died peacefully on Tuesday morning. This announcement post gives us the opportunity to share our condolences with her family and to remember her for all the great mods she made for us, and more importantly, to remember her for her great character and her kindness in helping others.

Mootilda was a highly respected member of the community and could frequently be found helping out in modding discussions and help forums. She was an accomplished programmer who loved to share her knowledge with others as well as being a site helper here on MTS for a number of years, and contributed extensively to the site and the community.

Mootilda - we will miss you, rest in peace.

Tumblr - Yes, I have a blog. :)

I will always remember Mootilda as a no-nonsense person with a genuinely kind heart. She helped me when I was new to the site and I always enjoyed reading her replies and of course using the great mods she made for us. Whenever I play my game or visit this site I shall remember her.

OMG this is very sad! She was amazing with her work on the lot mover, and I spent quite a bit of time working with her.

Oh my God, that's really awful.

Dear Mootilda, we will all miss you so very much!
You were always helpful and nice.
I hope you will now find peace.

My heart goes out to the family.

Oh wow. I've never really known her, nor her creations, but I'm glad to hear she died peacefully. Cancer can lead to an awful death.
Rest in peace, fellow Simmer.

I hate people who use big words just to make themselves look perspicacious.

Oh my gosh, how awfully sad. Mootilda was always so patient, talented and a truly creative problem solver. A huge loss to the sims community, and I am sure to the world in general. She will be sadly missed. My thoughts are with her family.

Oh my gosh how awful. She was a very integral part in keeping the community and the Sims 2 afloat. She was amazing.
I only knew her a little and I'm really sad. You will be missed Mootilda.

Goodbye Mootilda. I didn't know her but it's still very sad to hear.
