    The Eulogy for Kathleen Isobel ALLSOP
    Kathleen was born in Chasetown. Staffordshire and in the 1920s her family experienced the difficulties experienced by many as a result of the post was depression. As a young girl Kathleen went into service and from the time of her marriage she remained a housewife - an excellent one she was too. Ralph rejoices in the fact that during the years of the Second World War, they never experienced hunger, the garden, the allotment and the free range chickens providing all their needs. She was a woman who never spoke ill of anyone, never got angry and the only time Ralph ever saw her upset was when she was told that she had to have several evacuees during the war, and when her only child, Ralph, went into the army at 18. As well as her own family she kept an eye on her brothers and sisters and an even closer one on the grandchildren, Jo, Rebecca and the four great grandchildren when they arrived. She was indeed, the WILKINS family matriarch.
    Kathleen was an excellent cook, and pre-packed meals to her were an abomination, and Ralph will tell you I am sure, how meticulous she was about making tea - no tea bags in her house.
    Since her husband Albert’s death 30 years ago Kathleen has lived in a Warden controlled flat in Cirencester and her quality of life was somewhat curtailed when she had to have her leg amputated followed by another partial amputation resulting in confinement to a wheelchair. However, the home remained immaculate and cooking was still prepared. Her enjoyment in her later years included watching Songs of Praise, enjoying Noel EDMUNDS' appearances on TV and valuing the kindness she received from her neighbours Ernest and Brenda and the Carers who looked after her so well. Kathleen has outlived most of her friends and contemporaries and now has gone to join them we pray but the memory of Kathleen as a truly remarkable mother, mother in law, and grandmother and great grandmother will never be forgotten.
    To Ralph, Mary, Jo, Rebecca and the family we extend our sympathies but rejoice with them in the wonderful memories that they hold.
    May Kathleen now find the peace which she so long desired in the safe and tender arms of Jesus Our Lord.

The idea of these charts is to give the information that we have found in the research we have done and put together and with the help of many other people who have contacted us over the past thirty odd years we have been researching our family. The idea is that you click on the Chart box in blue to be taken to the next family. There is now a large number of charts to be found and connections can be made to all the main families I am researching. If a chart has a box with the standard background it means that as yet I have not put the Chart on the Web.
To conform to the Data Protection Act all the Charts have been altered to exclude all details for living people other than the name.
