Neither known to many nor making any impact on the worlds stage, but the impact she had on my life immense.

Evie was 90 years old and had lived in our home for 12 years. We walked many months of illness and stood besides her fighting her corners many more.

I am left with memories to treasure and some to painful to want to revisit, dementia was to take hold of her the last few year

Evie was born in Calcutta India now known as Kolkata  on “20/08/1921 into a wealthy family that gave her certain privileges, she was the eldest daughter of Constance and Jack bonnet  and   had a sister and  three brothers who have sadly passed away but no doubt have greeted her home. She met James Wallace, her husband when she was 16 years old eventually marrying him aged 26, on

20th 12/ 1946 and had 4 children. “Michael” her eldest son is my husband. Read more…
