Maggie was a daredevil when young and could be good company, but could be hard and selfish. I don't think I saw her after Mum died (1966) - and no one even bothered to tell me when she died in 1970.
I remember Grandma hoovering in the bungalow (think she moved after E died, cos 397 London Road is a house), remember a train journey to Carlisle with Mum.
Maggie kept in touch with touch with various local lads in WWI - notably Fred Walker, cousin of her best friend May Stamper. She kept his Valentine cards and a note from a German POW camp, where he ended up. a Jack Noble sent at least 4 pics to her, with love.
Like many farmers' wives, she sold eggs and butter at Carlisle market, for 'pin money'
