  1. My lovely Grandma.

    I have such fond memories growing up with Grandma, from trying on all her jewellery at her dressing table, teaching us how to arrange flowers, baking cakes and all the times when her and Grandpa would travel to New Zealand over christmas. I will always hold all these moments close to my heart. Grandma was a caring, kind and lovely woman who always made sure that all us grandchildren were happy and comfortable. Rest in peace now Grandma with Grandpa. Love you always, Sorcha xxx

  2. Grandma you were such a kind and caring person who always took care of us and made sure all of us Grandchildren were happy. You always liked the finer things in life like getting your hair and nails done and enjoying your cruises with Grandpa. I have so many memories from her helping me pick out colour coordinated outfits as a kid so everything matched and baking lots of yummy treats, and our Holidays in the Uk where Grandma and Grandpa got all dressed up for our trip to London to go to the theatre. I’ll cherish these memories and many more forever. I hope you and Grandpa are up there enjoying your cups of tea and cheese and biscuits once again. Rest In Peace together now Grandma and Grandpa. Love you forever and always Nola xx

  3. I will always hold some very special memories and experiences with Grandma. She was with us at some of the most important moments in my life from 18th birthdays to the Christmas’ and Easters I’ll never forget. Her love for baking and the treats she would bring along to every family gathering will be something that I miss. Holidays won’t ever quite be the same without her tin, decorated with knitted bears, filled with home-made brownies sitting on the counter whilst me and Ben periodically stole them one-by-one as we walked past. Where ever you may be now Grandma, I hope that you and Grandpa are in each others company and I hope you know just how badly you will be missed. With all the love in the world, Alex xxx

  4. Grandma was one of the most kind and caring people I’ve ever known. Her unrelenting need to make sure everyone was well and looked after was apparent to all who knew her. My childhood is filled with happy memories of time spent with both Grandma and Grandpa which I will always hold dear. The annual voyage down to Dorset was always the highlight of the school summer holidays. Both Grandma and Grandpa would go to great lengths to plan a week of activities for us, be it trips to the Tank Museum, Swanage railway, Durdle Door beach, The Isle of Wight, teaching Alex and myself to play Bowls or just simply a trip into wareham for a drink on the quay, these are memories I will always treasure.

    To lose Grandpa and Grandma in such a short period of time does bring me a great deal of sadness. However, there is solace in the notion that they are both together now and at peace. I hope we can do them both proud as they watch down on us.

    Rest in peace Grandma x

  5. Grandma,

    So many memories, it’s hard to pick my favourite. I will always cherish the ones where you and grandpa came to visit us in New Zealand at Christmastime when I was growing up, all the trips we would take and all the fun things we did. The times we came to see everyone in the UK, seeing Wicked at the grand Apollo Theatre and you not being too impressed with the London Underground. All the little things you did also, like dressing up for every occasion, getting your hair done. A platter of cheese and biscuits every night whilst Eastenders played on the telly. All such delightful memories, no matter how big or small.

    All the things you taught us grandchildren and how much you supported us through everything is something I’ll always hold close. Beyond grateful to have had you and grandpa in my life encouraging me to do my very best.

    Love you always, Grandma. May you rest in peace together with Grandpa

    With love, Jack xxxx

  7. Jenny so many wonderful memories, friendship through flowers. Many lovely times, Brian telling me your car had never had the seat so far forward when we went to Chelsea. We were polar opposite in our driving position.
    There are so many things I could write, so many flower orientated trips. Your help when needed with NAFAS trading. All these are stored as very precious memories.
    Rest in peace now with Brian.
    Our sympathy to all your family who we were often chatting about on trips your love for them shone out.
    Sue and Philip

  11. We would like to send you all our love today on this very sad occasion. I (Lana) have so many memories of Aunty Jennifer right back to when I was a small child and we had such lovely times in Wareham and at Christmas parties. James and I then have memories since and we always enjoyed our chats and catching up. One thing really stood out for us and that was how proud she was of Stephen and Sarah and their families and her grandchildren. You must have given her so much joy and so much comfort and support at the end.

  12. My memories of Jenny’s wry smile, dry humour and sense of fun at our get-togethers as well as her courage in ill health, her love of her family and support of others will remain with me – and her passion for artistry with flowers -so many happy memories of a very special lady.

  13. Jennifer Avril, Jenny was born in Streatham London,1942 in the middle of the Blitz. Mum often told us her earliest memory was being bundled into the pram by grandma Joan and having blankets piled on top as they rushed to the air raid shelter at night. Having survived the war (partly due to Pop Copley the butcher in the family who kept them well fed despite rations) Jenny grew up in postwar London being joined in 1946 by her little brother Rodney. A happy childhood involving a litter of puppies from cocker spaniel Sue and a cat called Lucky, as well as fond trips with Aunty Lily and Uncle Reg to London landmarks.
    The young family left post war Britain for adventure and a new life in Canada and they settled in Kings City Nova Scotia. Mum recalled her heady days at high school in Canada and made life long friends, a love for Elvis and spent summers boating on the lakes, but this new life ended in tragedy with the accidental death of William her father. Grandma Joan felt unable to carry on with the family dream and they returned to the UK settling in Portslade Sussex. Jenny found work as a dental assistant at this time when gold fillings were the thing. She was invited to an evening dance by good neighbours Joan and Jim Sayer and met a tall, kind, handsome man, Brian Moore. The romance blossomed and they married in October of 1965. Jenny and Brian lived in Lodsworth and she worked as a manicurist at a local hair salon in Midhurst. Their first baby was Gina the black poodle but in 1966 saw the birth of Stephen Richard and the family moved to Wareham, Dorset in 1970 following Brian’s promotion at work and Sarah Alison was born. As a homemaker with young children Jenny made many friends in Wareham and this was to be the family’s forever home. Little rituals like a tub of sweeties for the week, Sarah made them last, Stephen ate them all at once! Baking chocolate cup cakes, millionaires slice and flap jacks and the pudding to top all puddings tinned fruit with evaporated milk! Making do, chasing the twin tub around the kitchen, being creative and never throwing anything away. Mum was easily recognised around Wareham driving her bright blue Morris Minor. She volunteered at the Cancer research charity shop, was chairwoman of Ladies Circle and later Tangent enjoying many social evenings leading to life time friendships.
    Jenny worked as a Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages first at the Wareham and Swanage office before taking up a full time position in Dorchester where she worked for many years before retirement, being well know amongst colleagues both past and present.
    Jenny had a hobby, it blossomed into a passion and she became a talented, creative floral artist. She gained a City and Guilds diploma in floral art and also became an area demonstrator and Judge for NAFAS as well as being an active member of Wareham and Bere Regis floral groups. The pinnacle of Jenny’s floral art achievements were decorating Westminster Abby, and gaining a gold, best in show for her category at Chelsea Flower Show in 2004.
    Jenny was blessed with five grandchildren and enjoyed spending time with them baking, flower arranging, Easter egg hunts, theatre and shows, trips to the seaside and her favourite of all, our family get togethers at Christmas.
    Throughout her life Jenny loved to travel and visit places of interest she had an impressive spoon collection to match. She enjoyed travelling with Brian making many trips to New Zealand as well as Sri Lanka, the US, Canada and Europe. In later years they loved to cruise together with friends. Mum delighted in dressing for dinner each night, colour coordinated as always and not forgetting her colourful scarf to finish the outfit.
    Jenny will be remembered for being a talented, dedicated ambassador for NAFAs, a true friend and colleague who would help in any way she could. A wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, Aunty and cousin who will be dearly missed. She will leave a legacy of love and fond memories for everyone who knew her.
    God Bless Mum Xx
