It is with deep sadness that I have to report the death of my Mum. She lost her fight with Cancer on 11th July 2007. My brother Brian and I were at her bedside throughout her ordeal and witnessed her last breaths of this life.

Mum was buried in Helston, Cornwall on Monday 23rd July 2007.

The photo above was one of her favourites that was taken when she was crowned the "White Acres Ballroom Princess" in 1970. She was 46 at the time. She was a very pretty lady and I was so proud that she was my Mum. She will be so sorely missed by me and all my family.


  1. She looks so alive in the photo :(. she will love your keep on your mind how happy she was with her all family.
    Sorry John my deep condolences are with you.I was looking your email :(. all my best wishes are with you and your family for this sad moment!

  2. John, please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your beautiful mother. Words are so inadequate at times like this.
