Born at Chestnut Cottages, Grantham, she was the fifth child of George and Elizabeth Nix. In earlier years she played the accordion and was in the Carnival Band.

She met Mick in 1957, when they both worked at Kontak, and they were married at St Wulfram’s Church, Grantham, on March 22, 1958.

Prior to meeting Mick she was fond of riding motorcycles. She has three children, Kenneth, Annette and Jason, four grandsons, a granddaughter and four great-granddaughters. A great-grandson is due in November.

Her interests included knitting, sewing, baking, reading and occasionally fishing.

She was devoted to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and loved caring for them.
