|Angela Calvert (Family)
|My Mum was a truly fantastic, amazing lady who did lots of things for many people. She was always there for everyone, often going out of her way and doing more than was ever asked of her. She was a devoted wife to my Dad, John who she loved very much! A loving, caring mother to myself, and my two sisters Heather and Stephanie. She was a kind-hearted grandma to her six grandchildren whom she doted on. ( Callum, Ethan, Oliver, Mia, Clara and Logan) She was a sister in law to Kath my Auntie, My Uncle Graham, My Auntie Ann and my Uncle Kevin. An Auntie to Emma, Karl, Neil, Lynne and Great Auntie to Taylor, Jessica, Niamh and Imogen. Cousin to John, Linda and also Christine who was brought up with her as a sister. A special friend to many, always ready to lend an ear or share advice if needed.
For a great number of years she helped out at the local Playgroup and would volunteer to read with children in the local school that we attended as children and eventually began running the Playgroup at St.Christopher's until she decided to give it up to care for and enjoy some time with her grandchildren. All of which always enjoyed to share stories and rhymes with her. Join in with a bit of art and craft or a spot of baking. She would also help out with there homework too!
We would enjoy watching some TV together in the evenings and had a late night brew, often liking to watch Pointless, Bullseye, The chase on late night TV or the occasional NCIS. We also loved to watch cooking programmes together and often had a laugh with her about some of my mums unusual combinations for tea such as her famous pie and tomato soup in the same bowl. My Mum was a very caring lady and would always insist that I text if I was out late, to say I had arrived safely home.
I miss my mum very, very much, we enjoyed occasional lunches and trips out to the local coast or countryside on days when my sister wasn't working at the pub and I had a day off. We loved to visit my sister Heather, when she lived in Scotland and more recently Lincolnshire.
