In loving memory of the late June Margery Titford who sadly passed away on 28th February 2015
Born 22nd September 1938 at home at number 87 Hasting Road the 2nd oldest of 6 children.
Started school at Stoke in Brittan Rd, and moved to Stoke Secondary Modern until leaving school in 1953.
She liked listening to the Salvation Army band on the corner of the street on a Saturday night, penny for a guy on bonfire night, chasing the rag and bone man down the street.
Before leaving school Thursday nights use to be spend at the Stoke Ex Service club watching the boxing and dancing.
Saturday afternoon use to be bath time in the house and the three girls use to have to share the same bath water, and your mum use to always have to go last as she was always the dirtiest.
Sunday use to be the only day for your Sunday best clothes and Mum was forever being shouted at for getting dirty.
When she was old enough to go out the girls use to have a strict curfew at 10pm and it used to be Thursday and Saturday night at the Lacano and the Gaurmomt on a Sunday night. If they were late their dad used to walk to the bus stop and wait for them. Mum got wise and she use to get off the bus the stop before and run round the back and be in bed and pretend to be asleep before her dad got back.
Many times when coming home late the door use to be locked and bolted and Mum use to chuck stones up at the bedroom window that she shared with her sister Violet to wake her up and come down and let her in, and when she couldn’t wake her up she use to have to sleep the night in the outside toilet
Being the only family in the street to have a Black and White TV and all the neighbours came round the house to watch the queen’s coronation in 1953.
She met Keith whist working at Morris in clay lane, and she later went on to work at the hospital until she retired in the early nineties.
Everyone will know that she had a good sense of humour and loved nothing more than to sit down and have a good gossip although she always made sure her point of view was put over.
She was a wonderful family person and would do anything for her children, Ian,Gary,Karen,Deborah and Nigel and her Grandchildren, Katie,Sarah,Aimee and Lauryn and she had recently found out that she would be a great nan.
One thing as a family we all know 5.5 years ago her world was taken away and her heart was broken when Dad died…. We all know now that her heart has been repaired and she is taking the final steps to re-joining the love of her life.
