In loving memory of Jean Ballard who sadly passed away on 7th July 2015

Jean was born on Carter Lane in South Normanton in May 1942, to Arthur & Noreen Palethorpe, she has one sister, Dorothy. They later moved to Pinxton.

She was educated at local schools, John King Infants and Kirkstead Juniors. On leaving school at 15, she was employed at Pinxton Co-Op in the drapery department, where she met her future husband, Eric Ballard, who worked in the butchery department. They married at St Michael's Church in South Normanton.

Jean loved her home, watching her favourite programmes on TV and admiring her garden. In earlier years she enjoyed sequence dancing, holidays abroad, cruises, coach tours and in particular she loved visiting Blackpool, where she could dance in the Tower Ballroom. She also liked to go to the Buxton Opera House Theatre to see 60's groups and stars and Mansfield Palace Theatre to watch plays and pantomimes with her grandchildren.

Jean leaves her husband Eric, children Steven, Joanne & Michael and grandchildren Laura, Gemma, Lucy & Emily, sister Dorothy, and daughter in laws Elaine and Wendy
