In loving memory of Beryl Fay Watkinson (nee Eaton), of Ilkeston, passed away peacefully at home on 20th April 2014, aged 74.
Beryl was the first daughter of Elizabeth Lavinia Eaton and Wesley Eaton and older sister to Aileen and Jackie.
Beryl’s family were her life and she worked very hard to provide for her children, Paul and Jane. She was not only their mum but their friend too.
Beryl will be sadly missed by all her family especially her children, her grandchildren, Ben and Sam and great grandchildren, Morgan, Lewis, Faith, Leylan and Isabelle.
Beryl was a fun loving lady with a great number of friends, young and old. Beryl loved to be the life and soul of any event, dressing up, dancing and generally having lots of fun.
In quiet moments Beryl would love watch a cowboy film or crime drama whilst knitting or crocheting something for someone.
Beryl had many jobs, sometimes two at a time, from waitressing to garment examination. She worked at many places including Booths, DIP, Charnos, Co-Op and Metal Closures.
All of Beryl’s family and friends have many happy memories and she will be sadly missed by all that were privileged to been part of her life.
A celebration of life service will take place on 12th May 2014 at Bramcote Crematorium at 11am.
Any donations in lieu of flowers would be welcome, for Cancer Research UK or British Heart Foundation.

To Vinnie and Wes she was a much loved daughter
Getting in trouble much more than she oughta

Her life long friend next door she did find
Beryl and Ann had fun all the time

She was sister and friend to Aileen and Jackie
Always so close and always so happy

Factory fodder at school she was called
She proved them wrong, she did it all

Although many jobs Beryl had in the end
She was respected, admired by all her work friends

Then came her children, Paul and Jane
For whom her love never once did wane

She was Mum, she was best friend, she was loved and adored
No closer a family could you ever wish for

She nurtured, she protected with all of her being
A proud loving mother, all knowing, all seeing

Then nephews and nieces, they came along
She loved and adored them, that’s Beryl’s same song!

Finally the children, both grand and great
More than a Nanna, more than a mate

More like a Mum to all of her children
She was the best, one in a million.

Everyone speaks of her smile and her laughter
They will stay with us all til time ever after

She’ll be loved, she’ll be missed, her memory treasured
To know such a lady was more than a pleasure

Our love and our memories will never decrease
Night night dear lady, please rest in peace.

xXx

Mum,
You would have loved your funeral (I know that sounds strange but you know what I mean). You said you wouldn’t have enough friends to fill the downstairs of big red double decker London bus – how wrong you were! The bus left from home and it was full!! With many more friends joining us at the crematorium. There was a happy atmosphere on the bus and we had a few laughs thoughout the service – just what you wanted. Everyone commented how nice the service was. And of course the party, that was great too. Everyone sharing happy memories, eating, drinking and making merry. It was all perfect for you.
Love to you now and always.
Jane XXXX

Beryl,
You made me feel so welcome when I moved to the Little Acorn. I didn’t know you for long, but was a lovely lady to know in the short time I knew you.

What a lovely lady, always a smile, never a bad word. Your children are the best, you did them proud and they are a credit to you.
Always in our thoughts.

Beryl,
Never forget your smile, even when you said ‘rules are rules’ and we all had to behave or else! Dominoes won’t be the same, and I can’t one ‘em to death like you did.
Love Carol and Roy XX

Aunty Beryl
I have so many memories which I will cherish forever. I will always think of you when my lips go numb whilst drinking wine and when I see a set of false teeth.
Look after our Lady.
Love you always, Kerry XXXXXXXXXXXXX

Dear Beryl
We will miss your smiley face, two halves of lager and a bottle of wine (not a packet of crisps). You loved your dominoes – especially blank-one.
The world will be a sadder place without you. God Bless.
Love Mary, Eric, Jane and Pete. Xx

A wonderful lady, always be remembered and missed. Virgins corner will never be the same. Dominoes, Whacky and a glass or two of wine. You didn’t mind losing but enjoyed the games and especially the wine.
Love Nola and Dave.
