1920 – 2019
As the family matriarch she was a much loved mother, sister, wife and grandmother. The eldest of 10 she was apparently slow at chores when young so was given the nickname Speed by her uncles. It was used by friends and family for her entire life.
Joined the WAAF in1939 at the beginning of the war and worked her way up to sergeant. She met her RAF husband Ron and started a family in 1946. She was a floral designer with an amazing green thumb, and could make things grow just by looking at them.
She had a keen sense of humour, was wicked at cards and was a good penny pinching Scot.
So many wonderful memories…
Thanks for everything Mum!
