Rest in Peace Mother


This is a sad week,  my mother Marjorie Robinson died on Tuesday night in Clare Hall Nursing Home,   she would have been 92 on the 19th August,   this is a picture of her on our wedding day 16th August 2002,  she was 80 years old three days after the wedding.
This was the best picture I could find, we are not a family that take a lot of photos.
Mother was an ex Japanese POW with many injuries from the Japanese having been torpedo at sea and captured by the Japanese. Her nickname in the Navy was Bubbles.  Nothing made by the Japanese was allowed in the house when I was growing up,  I remember a christmas present being given to me, as I opened the present she saw made in Japan the present was taken and put straight in the bin.
She had a peaceful death, the dementia had taken over and she had lost the ability to know how to eat or drink.  The home had started feeding her and were wonderful I cant thank you them enough,   they gave her so much love and care.
They made sure that we were fed and watered,  I must say no wonder she put weight one they food was delicious and she had better care in there than she would have in a hospital
While I sat at her bedside, melting with the heat, I was knitting or tatting.
This picture below is us on our wedding day (the while picture) with Vernon's Dad and my Mother we had one parent each,   Vernon's dad died last year and now we have none.
                                                              Rest in Peace Mother.



  1. So sorry to read your sad news but comfort in knowing she had a peaceful end cared and loved by many.

  2. Hello Margaret
    I am very sorry to hear of your lovely Mum passing away. She is now in a much better place without pain. She must have gone through so much as a Prisoner, lucky to have lived for so long. I know she has not really known you for a while, but at least you still went to see her and talk to her, maybe she did know inside when you were there. We all end up at the same place and I hope you have lots of happy memories to look back on in the years ahead
    Hugs Tilly xx

  3. I am so sorry for your loss Margaret. Whatever a loved one's age or condition, it still hurts to lose them. She was obviously very much cherished by you right to the end. Take solace from the fact that she is at peace now. Huge Hugs Michelle x

  4. So sorry Margaret, your mum lived through some terrible times but is now at peace. I know you have lots of fond memories and I love hearing your stories about your mums life and the love she had for her pets. I hope Vernon is looking after you at this sad time. I wish I lived closer xx

    Love, Fox

  7. I'm so sorry for your loss, Margaret. As others have said, you provided her with the best of care in her final years. I am glad to hear that her passing was relatively peaceful. My grandmother had dementia as well, and her passing was very similar. I did not sense any discomfort on her part, as her awareness had become limited.

  8. Margaret I am so sorry to hear this sad News. Mums are so special to us all sending a hug Ginny x
