Notes: "As tough as the devil's toenails" - Quote from her mother.
"In her late teens she was put into a Home because her mother found her difficult to control. She had the girls in the Home gang up on the Matron who then took her to court. Her mum,
Annie, wanted her to stay in the home." sister, Gladys.  NB From me "Times were very difficult then and in the area they lived. Small house, 6 kids. Husband who died aged 44."
She is fondly remembered by her children and her daughters-in-law who remember her as a kind and caring mother & grandmother. I remember her humour especially. She was extremely good at telling  stories which would have us rolling with laughter. Times were never boring with Aunty Evie!
