Have your say

Mrs Georgina Ann Joan Ward (Gina) of Gresley Court, Grantham, has died in Grantham Hospital. She was 67.

Born in Hackney, London, she was the daughter of the late George and Dorothy Murphy and younger sister to Pat and Bill.

She is survived by her brother Bill.

She married young and started a family, moving to Grantham in the late 1960s. She was a devoted mother to her five children, Marvin, Shane, Cheryl, little Gina and Karl. After the breakdown of her marriage she lived for her children.

In 1980 she found true happiness and love with her future partner Moe, setting up home in Grantham. They took their civil partnership in 2005.

As the family grew up and took their own paths, Mrs Ward was gifted with 22 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren.

She had various jobs before settling at PAS for the remainder of her working life. She was a hard worker and was highly respected by all at PAS.

For her 60th birthday she fulfilled her lifelong ambition as a devoted Elvis fan, when she and Moe visited Graceland, the home of Elvis in Memphis, Tennessee. The highlight of her visit was visiting his grave.

The couple bought a static caravan at Chapel St Leonards, where they would spend many happy times with family and friends and her beloved Westie, Reba.

Her other interests were music, crocheting, walking her dog, dining out and taking holidays.

The funeral service was held at St Anne’s Church, Grantham, conducted by the Rev Janet Rogers. Burial followed in Grantham cemetery.
