Sorry to hear that Mavis has passed. Since she was one of the "older cousins" i did not know her well but had recently been in contact with a man from Bristol who knew her and he had greeted her from me.. I had hopes of driving up to Bristol to see her this summer. My condolences to her family. Georgia Bleck Hetland

Such a loving and lovely lady. She was very loyal to her job and to the residents of Sun Dial Manor and, despite the health problems she had, she seldom missed a day of work...and seldom complained about her ailments...had a lovely smile!
