A sad life
The most intelligent of her siblings said AMW
she was put on a train by Jock some time after her marriage and sent home to her parents.
The resultant depression put her in a mental hospital for life diagnosed as Demantia Praecox
My Aunty Norah used to take her to Grey West, Pilning in the fifties and I met her there.
A shadow of a personality, a round woman ..
I have just found a book with her signature when she was 15
