Her life was her family who she loved with all her heart. When mum did have a bit of time for her and dad she played darts for the Pig public house on Nantwich Rd. She love to watch darts and snooker on TV. Mum liked to watch the soaps and Jeremy Kyle, she also enjoyed going to the charity shops with her daughters. Mum also thoroughly enjoyed days out to the seaside , holidays to Scotland to see her family she enjoyed a cup of tea with a chocolate eclair and Paul’s home-made cakes. Her children teased her about putting her favourite lipstick on when she went to see Dr Watson. She had a good sense of humour and smiled a lot, she loved her Saturday night at home with all her family together for tea and chat about what was going on in their lives. To our family she was our very own Queen, and a fantastic lady.
She made an impression on everyone she met. Her kindness and love is something the whole family want to emulate in our own lives . Mum had good health right up to her 80’s she was diagnosed with vascular dementia she also had to have treatment for cancer in her leg she enjored radiotherapy but it did help and she remained upbeat and just like mum kept smiling. We as a family have been lucky to have Paul looking after her with such love and affection. Jean also gave her mum much love and care and all the rest of the family tried to do as much as they could .But it’s With our broken hearts that we have to let our mum go. Mum passed away in the place that she loved, her home. We as a family will draw much comfort from this fact, mum knew she was loved by each and everyone of us and as we let her go to be with dad we say, fly high you beautiful angel. Thank you for being the best mum we could ever have wished for. Good night and God bless mum.
