Maureen Garnham

In Loving Memory of our Mum Maureen who we lost after a short illness and who we miss dearly. Maureen was born to Charles and Toni Francis on 9 April 1943. The sister of Malcolm and Christopher and who also helped in the upbringing of Sandra. She spent her whole life in Ipswich, going to Westbourne School and leaving there to work at the Ancient House Press. Where she later met the love of her life Brian. After their courtship, Maureen married Brian in 1965 and moved into Rushmere Road. There she met other young couples who over the years became close neighbours and true friendships formed. In 1967 the start of her long awaited family began to arrive. Firstly, Amanda followed by James and then Victoria. Maureen was a brilliant homemaker and mother and gave her family a loving and stable upbringing. When the children were a little older she started childminding and began to share her love with other children. These children she took into her home and brought them up as any mother would. Maureen became an auntie many times over, not only in the family but to those she looked after. After her own children were settled into school Maureen started working at Burostat and then a few years later moved onto Crabbe Street Home for the Elderly. At both places she made many good friends. Since 1987 she has proudly seen her children marry, Amanda to Roger, Victoria to Richard, James to Dee and then played a big part in the upbringing of her six grandchildren. Maureen has always enjoyed life, liked shopping, going to the Theatre and spending many happy holidays with her husband, spending many hours cooking and doing what she could for her family. During her life she has been the anchor (the main stay) of the Garnham household. Always there to listen, a person we could all rely on. She has touched the lives of so many people and is sadly missed by all those who knew her.
