What a wonderful family legacy you have left behind!
Mother of 1, grateful Grandmother of 3, loving great grandmother of 8 and proud great great grandmother of 2. Probably your proudest achievement.
As a young child I use to love visiting you during holidays at Scratby in Norfolk, where you lived with Grandad Fred as shop owners. I remember sitting in a highchair in the kitchen so I couldn't of been that old.
Full of beach toys, the shop was where I loved to be. I remember raiding it on a regular basis and was never short of fun things to play with, it didn't take much for me to capitalize on your generosity. You were always exceedingly kind and loving. Every summer holiday I would visit and stay for weeks on end and it was always sad leaving you.
Eventually you both retired and the shop became your huge front room, from there you could see the sea and clifftops and large green, ideal for flying kites and riding bikes. This is where myself, my brother and sister use to spend most our time playing, under your watchful eye.
I can remember so many happy times spent with you and Grandad. Some of my happiest memories from my childhood and I can remember it all so vividly.
Later in life you moved to Somersham with grandad and it was great for us kids to have you near.
Unfortunately, soon after moving down your life changed. What should have been a time for enjoying being closer to family became a time of sadness and loss, which I know was a huge blow for You and Grandad, especially as You both loved spending time with the Family and we were the reason why you moved near. Along with the rest of the Family you went through probably the darkest period of your life with lots of upset at this time.
With the death of grandad Fred in 1990 you found support and help from amazing friends in the village with whom I know you were so thankful for.
Your strength of character and determination to keep going was incredible and even at the end you showed amazing resilience.
Rest in peace gran and thankyou for the memories and love.
