I just heard that my Aunty Ivy died - my great-aunt, that is. She was my granddad's oldest sister - 93 years old and riddled with dementia these last few years, bless her heart, but a real powerhouse in her day, the oldest daughter in a family of 10 children - clockwise from left that's Stanley, Kenneth, Cyril, Ivy, Robert, my granddad Arthur, Philip, Marjorie, Georgie and Marion with their parents Alf and Edith
1930s - Browning - Alf, Edith and children -Stanley, Kenneth, Cyril, Ivy, Robert, Arthur, Philip, Marion, George, Marjorie
Bobby was killed in the war and Philip also died young, but in 1993 eight of the ten siblings were still alive - this photo taken at a family gathering captures the last time they were all together in one place - here's my granddad Arthur with Stan, Ken, Ivy, Georgie and Cyril with Marion and Marjorie in front.
1993-01-30 - Browning siblings - Arthur, Stan, Ken, Ivy, George, Cyril, Marion, Marjorie - Marj and George Piddock's ruby wedding
Now Auntie Mai, the youngest sister, is the only one left. She'll be crushed - it's less than four months since we lost Marj.

Rest in peace, Ivy
