DOROTHY
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.

Mum/Nan

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

Due to the current guidelines a private family ceremony will be held at Parkwood Crematorium on Friday 15th January 2021 at 11.15am. Donations in lieu of flowers may be sent to George Brooke Ltd., Funeral Directors, or made online for the benefit of both the Wakefield Hospice and The Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
RIP

  • That’s so sweet of you Debbie. She loved it when you did her hair. She loved to you to bits and you was a good friend to mum. I got to know you through your mum which I had work with for many years and was also a lovely lady. I’m sure they will be putting the world to rights up there. ❤️❤️❤️

Well where do I start Nan.
I always said you’d out live everyone, and I still believe you would of.
I’m going to miss our long telephone chats.
I always thought to myself, I’m driving a long way so I’ll ring R Dot for a catch up HaHaHa
I remember you always saying we need to make a stand and strike for what we believe isn’t right. Usually rising fuel prices. I can hear you now “ Well I know I bloody wouldn’t pay it if I was driving” HaHaHa
I remember holidaying in Reighton Sands and me you me mum and R Sam went for a walk on the beach until the tide had started to come in and we couldn’t turn back as it was covered, so we had to scale the cliff edge.
I remember you getting to the top laughing your head off (Both you & me mum in-fact) and wetting yourself HaHaHa (I think that’s where me mum got it from HaHa)
I’ve so so many stories to tell Nan and the kids always say “tell us a story about Nana Dot.
The press bed always goes down well and the time the back garden was full of Moser’s cows 🐮
You've left a huge hole in the family Nan that nobody will be able to fill.
But I promise you one thing R Dot we will celebrate your amazing life & share many stories when we are allowed.
Sweet Dreams Nana Dot Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
