Mildred Mary Dale “Milly”

“Nothing on earth will ever replace the sound of your voice or the smile on your face.”

Milly passed away in the care of Leighton Hospital on 17th December, aged 87 years.

A much loved mother, nanna, great nanna and friend.

Milly was one of 9 children born in Haslington,  to Mary and George Bickerton. Over the years she had various jobs, starting at the shirt factory before moving on to the goods department on Gresty Road, followed by the saw mill at Willaston. This is where she found romance with Ted and had 3 wonderful children, Sandra, Tez and Marc. She was an amazing mum and her children were never far away. She lost her son Tez to cancer 10 years ago which she found very difficult.

Milly had many hobbies –  Speedway with her brothers, darts in her younger years. She loved watching TV and liked a dabble with the horses, a game of bingo and later spending time with her grandchildren whom she loved. She was nan to 10 grandchildren and a great nan to 13. For the last 25 years Milly would go on holiday with Marc, Sandra, Joanne and the grandchildren at Dawlish Warren holiday park. Milly was a caring and funny and always a pleasure to be with.

Milly’s funeral will take place on Friday 4th January 2019 in the Crematorium Chapel, Crewe at 12 noon, followed by cremation.
