#14 Favourite Photo of Lois Haskard….52 Ancestors

As soon as I saw this title I knew who I was going to pick for this post and which photo.

Aunt Lois









This is my Great Grandmother “Mamma” Lois Green nee Haskard.

Lois and her husband Ernest Green were the first people in my Family History Hunt and this photo is one of the first I added to my little collection.

I have so many fond memories of “Mamma and Grandad”. Their little house in Kirkby in Ashfield, how Grandad was always sat in his armchair, their little apple tree and rows of runner bean plants in their back garden and how every week my mum would take Mamma shopping and in the school holidays me and my sister would go with them and on one occasion we somehow managed to tip mamma’s trolley, contents and all, over in the aisles of Asda. Oops.

I was 10 when my Grandad passed away in December 1996. Mamma passed away nearly two weeks later on the 1st of January 1997. My mum always says Mamma died of a broken heart from missing Grandad and i agree with her, they were a lovely couple and I’m glad I got to meet them.


PS. How glam does Mamma look in that photo!!!
