Mary was a lovely woman, friend and next door neighbour for 43 years. Her family are a credit to her and her late husband Bill (now reunited).

Mary, you will be sorely missed by myself and Dave. It was an absolute pleasure knowing you and having you as a lovely neighbour, you're now safe in the arms of Bill and your daughter Sue,

Thank you Nana. For everything.
You have always been such a caring and nice person towards everyone.
You have always been the centre of our family.
You have always been there for us. I know that i speak for everyone when i say that we all loved you and we will all miss you immensely. Bringing the family together on events, all of us celebrating together, being what family should be all about. Even though you might not be here with us any more we won't drift away from each other. We need to stay together and keep the bonds between family that you gave us.

I remember the times that i spent with her, watching tv in the evenings or sometimes a film, just enjoying each others company. We ate together and when we had finished i would take the plates in and come back with two ice creams for us whilst we enjoyed each others company. It might not seem like much to others but for me it's a memory that i love. It was nice to be with her, both of us just enjoying something /together/. It's something i will never forget.
I love you Nana.

It is a sad loss to our family and those who were privileged to know this wonderful lady.
I think I can speak for everyone, when I say it was amazing to see how Nanna continued to live her life as independently as possibly throughout the years. She was always popping out, or waiting for someone to visit her and that's the way I will remember my Nanna. The most popular 80 year old lady, I've ever known. One wish of mine, is I hope that when I grow older, I am loved and cared for as much as this lovely woman was. No one ever had a bad word to say about her, even when she was telling us off for silly things we had done. Memories of time spent with Nan, will always be cherished and remembered. One to make us all laugh, and will always stick out, is the time we went out shopping and she had her slippers on. But like a trooper, we continued our be fair, they just looked like really comfy shoes :)

It's such a shame knowing we don't get to spend time with her and will miss her terribly, but there's a bitter-sweet outcome that she is with Granddad and Sue.
Love you Nanna Mary xxx

It is such a big lose for the people lucky enough to of been apart of my nans life. I don`t think I will ever meet someone who is as caring towards others, strong willed and so independent right to the very end.
Her loyalty towards family/friends knew no bounds and she would help out at the drop of a hat.
Having moved half way across the world to start a new life in Australia, I thought it would be really hard to keep in touch with nan but for someone who knows no limits. I was not surprised to find out that as well as starting a facebook page, she also got the latest mobile phone so I could continue to send her photos of her 2 additional great grand kids to watch them grow and add to the ever expanding photo wall.

My best surprise from nan was when I sent her an invite to my wedding to be held in Thailand thinking she would decline but keep the invite as a fond memory, only for her to accept and get her first ever passport to come join us celebrate getting married. It was an amazing wedding and also great family holiday which we always loved going on with nan.

I will always have the great memories of time spent with nan and whether it be just sat at her house having a tea and chat or the many drives she would take us grand kids on in the old Nissan Micra to the local markets for sweets. She will be greatly missed RIP Nan xx
