Joan Sallis OBE - My Beloved Mum 23.1.28-28.1.19 RIP

I have no words at the moment. Couldn't manage to do this until now.

Her marriage to our Beloved Dad was to last 60 years

David, John, and Lucy

'Only one lick though Mum'

Her campaigning life - the Taylor Committee of Inquiry into School Management and Governance

Mum's 80th birthday at John's

Last year - dear Crystal, a regular live in visitor


  1. Sending you much love, Lucy.

  2. Lucy, I am so very sorry to hear your sad news, this post is such a lovely tribute to your dear Mum. She was clearly a very remarkable lady. Thinking of you. Hugs, Anne xxx

  3. What a lovely tribute to your dear Mum Lucy! I'm so sorry to hear of her passing.
    Sending you lots of love,

  4. Thinking of you - I lost my mum 3 years ago and think of her every day.

  5. My condolences to you and your family, Lucy. This is a lovely tribute to your mum.

  6. Hello Lucy, I am so sorry for your loss. A big hug.

  7. I've been far too absent this year - and only just hearing the news of your immeasurable loss, Lucy. This is a wonderful tribute to someone who was clearly an extraordinary woman, hugely valued by the wider world as well as so very much loved by you. A life well lived - and I've no doubt she lives on in your thoughts every day.
