I wrote about the first 50 years of my grandma’s life in part one and wanted to finish with a photo from every decade that followed. I am not sure which part of her life she cherished most I suspect it might have been in the early 30’s when as the wife of a well off factory manager she played tennis with friends while Gwen was at school and husband at work.

1968

The first great grandchild was quite an event too

1972

And so were the weddings of grandchildren

1985

She enjoyed meeting up with Ethel life long friend, one time neighbour and her daughter’s mother-in-law

1985-2

After her second  husband died she came to live with daughter Gwen

1992

Olive enjoyed nearly 10 of her daughter’s retirement years

1997

Happy times gave way to frailty  and a horrible last year so sad. Miss you grandma you did a grand job
