In loving memory of Elizabeth Gillborn who sadly passed away on 24th October 2021
Elizabeth Reeve was born 16th July 1928, the youngest child of Harry & Ellen. Her brother Harry sadly is no longer with us, and her sister Joyce has just celebrated her 101st birthday.
Elizabeth (Betty, as she was known) married Roy on 26th December 1950, they had a long and happy
marriage until Roy sadly passed away on 3rd May 2006. They had 2 children, Sheryl & Mark, and 3 grandchildren, Mia, Elyna and Phoebe. She loved them all dearly.
In the days before they had children, Betty and Roy loved to dance and many old photographs reflect this love of dancing together.
Betty, (who in recent times confessed she would have much preferred to be called Liz) had a great love of holidays and travelled to many places across the world, firstly with Roy and later in life with her friends. She was hoping to have continued to do this.
She had a passion for crafts and spent hours making things, her display case at home is filled with eggs that she has decorated, it was one of her wishes while in hospital that anyone wanting to remember her would be welcome to take home one of her eggs. Please make this known to the family if you would like one.
In 2010, Betty moved to live at Valley Court, stating this was one of the best things she could have done after losing Roy. Betty had many very happy years living there and made some lovely friends, organising social events and day trips for everyone, she was in her element.
Betty did like to keep up with technology and made sure she had the up to date iPhones, iPads, laptops and anything else classed as a ‘gadget.’
Elizabeth, Betty, Bet, Liz, Mum, Nanny, however you have known her, she will be greatly missed by us all.
