    She was living at 5 Priory Road at the time of her wedding in 1938.Her sister, Joanna, was her bridesmaid. Five other couples were married that day, probably because at that time marriage in Advent or Lent was not generally permitted in the Catholic Church, so there was queue of hopeful punters by Boxing Day!

     

    She was, at various times, a post office clerk when she was a teenager, a worker at Barker & Dobson's sweet factory in Anfield, a clerk at Littlewood's Pools, a shop assistant and a clerk in later life in the then Post Office Telephones.
