She endured the May 1941 Blitz (bombing) of Liverpool during WW2, and contributed to the war effort by working as a welder in a factory. She was widowed at the age of 49, but managed to provide for and raise 3 boys of her own, after her first child died in infancy, and she was later blessed with 5 treasured grandchildren. She was much loved by her family and a pillar of her community, who have all been left with many fond memories of her toughness, kindness and generosity. B: 29th October 1900. D:11th May 1985. RIP.
