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.

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

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.
