Shortly after Dad passing away Mum moved to Peterborough with my Husband and myself for 8 years. Mum had very poor health, she lost the use of her hands and legs and was wheel chair bound. Mum moved from Peterborough to spend her last 7 years to be cared for in a rest home at Whitstable near my brother Fred and Nephew Alan. The home overlooked the sea. She was well cared for all the staff and residents thought highly of her and she will be sadly missed.

A lovely Mother and Grandmother and Great-Grandmother.

To be loved and remembered always.
