In Memory of Lillian Edith Butcher nee Matthews 1912- 1995

17 years ago today, my beloved Grandmother passed away. I thought that I would share a few of my favourite photos of her.

  • Top left – aged 12 years
  • Top right – aged 21 years
  • Bottom left – taken circa 1940
  • Bottom right – taken circa 1948 with my Grandfather and their daughter, my Mum.

    Hi A.D,,

    Thanks for a lovely comment and for making me #2 on the list. I am off to check out your page now. I really wish I had though of doing a top 5 each day….maybe next year!


  3. Isn't it wonderful to have photos of your grandmother to remember her by. Sounds like you were close.

    It is lovely that I have photos and I have quite a few of them. Sadly non of her wedding. We were very close and I think of her often. She was an amazing lady.

    She looks a lovely lady Julie. I wish I'd written down more of my grandmother's stories which she told me when I was a child. She died a few days after my daughter was born. It's great that we can pay tribute to these wonderful women through the blog.

    Thanks for stopping by Nell and your comment. She was an incredible influence on me. I have some really fond and amusing memories of her and thankfully I did make lots of notes of our conversations together.
