About Mary

My mum was a born carer. She was born in Nova Scotia, Canada where her Dad was a miner at the time – the family had emigrated in 1926 during the General Strike. However, they missed Scotland too much and came back when she was only 3 in 1934. The family settled in Prestonpans and her Dad continued in the mines until he retired. She had 5 siblings and left school at 14 to look after her little brother who had cerebral palsy. He died at only 2 years old. Mum went on to train as a cook and when she married, she then trained as a carer in a residential home. She had me and my sister and worked as a carer and home help until her retiral at 65. She loved travelling and visited the USA, Canada ( she visited the place where she was born) and all parts of Europe. Her family – particularly her grandchildren – were her life.

A Personal Message

Mum was my best friend ( after I moved out of the house of course) and was the most amazing grannie to her 4 grandchildren. She died of Covid19 in May 2020 at the age of 89. Her 2 sisters are still alive – and were not able to attend her funeral due to restrictions at the time – nor could her eldest grandchild, my son, who lived in the Lake District and who was not allowed to travel. I have Mum’s ashes and we will all get together as soon as we possibly can to scatter them on the Forth – the water where she was brought up and where she had her happiest times.
