Police have named a pedestrian who died following a road accident in Oldmeldrum earlier this week.
Helen Filson, 81, was hit by a car in the town’s Eavern Place on Tuesday morning.
She was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary with serious injuries where she later died.
The accident, involving a grey Audi A4, happened at around 8.20am.
Speaking on behalf of her family, Ms Filson’s daughter Sharon Munro said: “Mum was a feisty and energetic person who enjoyed living an independent and social life in Oldmeldrum.
“She loved her family and has three children as well as grandchildren and a great-grandson who will all miss her dearly.
“Prior to our dad’s death they loved to go hill-walking and take caravan holidays and we have very fond memories of them both.”
