IN LOVING MEMORY

Georgina Bailey our Mum

1921 - 2003

updated 14th May 2008

A very special Lady left our lives, she never had a second name, she has now, she became our Mum.

Born Georgina Broome in October 1921 she grew up Youngest Daughter of George & Winifred & sister to Frances, Florence, Kathleen, Jack and Percy.

She married Raymond Bailey in 1945 and gave birth to three children Malcome, myself and sister Pauline.

Mum loved Flowers, to Dance, fine music her cigarettes and fun. Not an easy life for Georgie but she always put on a brave face.

In her early years she served the Nursing profession to the Mentally ill ending as a sister.

Once again thanks for being our Mum.

MESSAGES

Hi Terry , Mac , Pauline . all cousins and familys , My first thought when you rang me terry was one of disbelief , I wept buckets for your Mum ,, then thought to myself , cry not for she is gone but be glad that she had lived ..

    Georgie was much much more than a sister in law , she was a friend, we lived with you all in the first years of our marriage ,,life wasn,t easy in those days , but we survived ,

  remember the times when we would all go for picnics at Blaise Castle ,, comming home with blue bells that you kids had picked ,, no money but that didn,t matter ,

   walking all the way up to Shirehampton ,, prams kids the lot ,just to get 1& twopence worth of meat , that was the meat ration for one person ,lol always hoping we could con a lambs fry from the butcher ,, or a Pkt of cigs  at the grocers ,,but we had a good milkman ,, very often he would sell us 5 cigaretts , we,d have 2& a half each ?????then would spend an hour deciding whether to smoke a whole one or the half ????

    To me I have so many lovely memories , of you kids too when you were young ,,, an extended family you might say ,,

    Georgie was a survivor  , and a lady always , she raised all of you beautifully , there will be something of your Mum in all of you ,, and so she lives on ,,shes is just sleeping ,,, may she rest in peace with I hope with Perce Jack Kath & Florrie ,so many lovely memories when we were all together ,,My Tribute to a very lovely lady ,,, Our Georgie,,

    love to you all   Babs xxxxxx

Terry & Marlene, Please accept my sincerest condolences on your very sad loss; Georgina was a very special lady, and whilst Pauline & I were married, she was like a second mum to me....in fact, she always treated me as a son.We will all miss her.With all my best wishes at this very sad time

Bob. 

 Dear'est Terry

I was so sorry to hear of the sad loss of your Mum.

I read Aunty Barb's e-mail and all of the memories of my childhood came back, not that they were very far from my memory. A memory that came flooding back was at party at your house, all of our family was there, though not Uncle Frank (was he ever at a party)? Anyway, your Mum had put a pineapple cube on a stick with a hunk of cheese and I told her that, that was a pudding thing and cheese was a supper thing and she asked me if I had ever eaten it together, I told her, No and she asked me to try it as she walked off. I did, then caught sight of Auntie Georgie laughing with me with her finger pointing to take another.

The Broome girls had an aura about them, they were ladies. I can't remember a time where any of them sat casually in a chair, their backs were always straight and they stood very tall. I'm sure us girls get our deportment from them.

Anyway Terry, I've spoken with Pauline tonight and I shall be at the funeral on Tuesday. I'm going straight to Paulines house and she will direct me from there.

Thinking of you, take care

Lots of love
June XXXXX

Dear Terry and Marlene,
Dad just told me that Aunt Georgie passed away a week or so ago. . I'm afraid Dad is a little forgetful these days. All of Kaths' family
think of Georgie with great fondness, I know they were very close years ago.We remember childhood summer holidays shared with you all and of course
Florrie and John!! Mum's death is still so fresh in my memory and my thoughts are with you, Pauline and Malcolm and your families. She was a truly lovely lady. Much love,

Thinking of you all, Nicky, David and family

 

On behalf of myself Pauline and Mac I thank every one for thier kind comments.

 

Finally just received from my Favorite sister is some written work in mums neat handwriting she found amongst mums things.

Wonderful words that must be read...

WHEN I COME TO THE ROADíS END

 

AND THE SUN  HAS SET FOR ME

 

I WANT NO RITES IN A GLOOMFIELD ROOM

 

WHY CRY FOR A SOUL SET FREE.

 

MISS ME A LITTLE,BUT NOT TOO LONG

 

AND NOT WITH YOUR HEAD BOWED LOW

 

REMEMBER THE LOVE THAT WE ONCE SHARED

 

MISS ME BUT LET ME GO.

 

FOR THIS IS A JOURNEY WE ALL MUST TAKE

 

AND EACH MUST GO ALONE.

 

ITS ALL A PART OF THE MASTERíS PLAN

 

A STEP ON THE ROAD TO HOME.

 

DO NOT STAND AT MY GRAVE AND CRY

 

I AM NOT THERE, I DID NOT DIE.

Georgina
