(Employed as housekeeper to widower Charles Smith & family. Inspired loving devotion in all her children. An expert needlewoman - even when terminally ill and unable to do physical work she'd keep up with her mending. She’d send one of the children to follow their father on Monday mornings and report back whether he went to work or to the pub, so she could budget accordingly. Auntie Thora once said to Shelagh: “You're like my mother - she also found her happiness in her children.”)
