Celebrating Christmas and the NewYear is a time for reflecting on the previous one and for me it has been a very difficult one as my Mum, Patricia, died on 19th May 2013.

She died of lung cancer even though she never ever smoked, only passively. She was a beautiful, lovely person and a wonderful mother.

She was once a nursing auxillary at Epsom hospital, and worked for Gossards and Nemarks watch manufacturers as well as the LCC that was. But her longest job was as a lollipop lady, which she did for nearly 30 years. She is missed very much by my brother and I and it will take a long time to think about her without feeling so sad.

I have chosen some photos here to share and celebrate her life.

Patricia Joyce Jones

1929 - 1913
