Tommy,there was a "JENKINS" family that lived in Cuckoo Ave.

I wonder if Elsie was one of them?

What a great age to live to, probably attributed to jellied eels,winkles, pie and mash with a bottle of good old English stout.

Does anyone recall the family.?

Sad news about Elsie. She lived at
44 Greatdown Road, next door but one to my house, 48. There were six children,Joan, the eldest, eventually married an Australian and went to live there, then Charlie, who was a good mate of mine, Pauline, who died in her teens. Sylvia, my sometime's girlfriend, John, who was another good mate, and Norman, who also moved to Oz. Only John remains and I was so pleased to meet up with him and his wife at the last reunion.

Elsie was a rather shy lady but did a marvelous job of bringing her kids up, best remembered for always red leading the front steps. John was diligent in visiting her at the nursing home where she had lived for several years.

I posted a picture on the site to celebrate her, I think, 102 birthday.

I just checked back through the archive and the photo of Elsie was posted July 2 2008. There were two pictures, the other one, smiling, was nicer.
