Our dear Gypsy, died on 9th September. We will miss her greatly.
She was truly one of the most kind and gentle people that you could ever hope to meet. All through her life she helped and supported others. She was devoted and uncomplaining often putting her own happiness to one side to support others. She was the long term carer for her mother, Nanny Mo, she helped our mother in the difficult days when our father was ill with cancer, she later moved in with our mother and they supported each other for many years.
For the three of us, her niece and nephews, we knew her from our earliest days as our Aunty Gypsy, not Mona – she disliked that name. She was unmarried and perhaps because of that it fell to her to be the main carer for her own mother. We will always have happy memories of Gypsy and Nanny Mo. One memory is of Sunday mornings at her flat, checking the pools and having a ‘frothy coffee’. Another memory is when one of us was ill, we knew that Gypsy would be around that evening with some small present that would help us on our way back to health. She cared for Nanny Mo, through to her final days. Later after our father died, she moved in with our mother, her older sister. They made a formidable pair. Our mother’s feistiness and humour, and Gypsy’s intelligence and gentleness. They had lots of ‘japes and capers’ together and took part fully in the community activities around them such as the U3A (and often making light-hearted fun of the people they met there)
Gypsy was intelligent. Although the war and the expectations of the role of women then held her back from having a more high level career, she showed her potential in a host of different areas: she took A-levels on her own initiative as an adult, she had a deep love of poetry and classic English literature, she took a course in wood working, she excelled in watercolour painting, and she took lessons in the violin. (One piece of music she loves was, Mendelssohn’s violin concerto)

‘Peggy and Gyps’ – it sounds like a well-loved stage act, except that these two sisters needed no script to endear them to anyone lucky enough to be a guest at Bourneside Road.

Armed with an accent for comedy, Peg was the wickedly subversive one while Gyps was happy to concede the limelight, but not sidelined, always smiling warmly, the true centre of the fireside glow.

Never take for granted the good nature of someone with hearing loss. In over fifty years not once did we ever hear Gyps say a cross or unkind word. For that alone she was simply amazing and we will always remember her – always alongside her sister – with deepest fondness and love.
