Lilian moved to Birmingham from Newcastle upon Tyne 5 years before her death. Born and bred a Geordie it was a huge undertaking to make the move.
She wanted to be near her Grandchildren and Great-Grandchildren and see the young ones growing up.
Her daughter, Gill, reflects:
Mum was always interested in young children and would happily just sit and watch the chatter and play during our regular ‘coffee mornings’.
She knitted and crochetted avidly and with tremendous skill despite slowly worsening vision.
In her younger days she would do keep fit and national community dancing.
When she retired (very reluctantly at 60) she was Secretary to the North East Divisional Manager for the Co-op Insurance Society.

Share You Memories of Lilian
As a family we are very keen environmentalists and planting a tree enables us to reflect over the years. Mum’s ashes are in Newcastle from July 2021 so having a tree in the Midlands is closer for our family.
A Personal Message
Mum left 2 children (myself and my brother), 2 Grandchildren (my children) and 5 Great-Grandchildren ranging from 17 to 3 years old.
She is also survived by her younger sister who is in her nineties and a number of friends both in Newcastle and in Birmingham, all of whom have their own memories.
