On 15th December 2020, in hospital, of Birstall, aged 87 years, Dorothy, loving and proud mum of Christine, John, Elaine, Diane, Gill, Anthony, the late Pat and the late Stephen, a very dear mother in law, precious nan to her many grandchildren and also precious nana Dot to great and great-great grandchildren.
One of life’s great characters!
Mum/Nan was raised in Earlsheaton and was sister to 4 brothers - Harry, Fred, Thomas & George and 4 sisters - Betty, Barbara, Shirley & Nellie.
She would have many a tale to tell about her growing up in Earlsheaton and the things she got up to at her school,which was in Earlsheaton Park.
She would say she ‘travelled the world’ all from her armchair. As she watched the many tv shows that she liked. (Especially the old Corrie shows)
Mum/Nan had many opinions on things, from Americans, Foreigners and to the more recent Megan Markel ha ha.
Our Dot was very away of current affairs and would love to chat away about them - well when I say that, I mean sit and tell us what she thought.
Often to the dismay of us all, when she had things to say about them, putting the world to rights, ha ha.
She made us all chuckle when she did this.
Nan always wore her signature look - a blouse a black or blue skirt and a bright coloured cardigan.
So in honour of this I know Mum/Nan would love it if we wore something bright for her day. I can hear her now saying “oh don’t be wearing dark, let’s have a bit of colour”
So we’ll raise a Shandy or Yorkshire Tea for R Dot to celebrate what a fantastic lady she was.
She may not be here in person. But she will always, always be a part of us all xx
