Nothing on earth will ever replace the sound of your voice or the smile on your face.

Passed away peacefully at her home, surrounded by her loving family on Sunday 3rd May 2020 knowing that she was loved deeply. Carol aged 87 years of Burslem, the dearly loved and loving wife and soulmate of Brian, the much loved and most precious mum of Geoffrey, Susan and Jayne, a devoted and treasured nan of David, Leigh, Harry, Chloe and Isabella, a dearly loved and cherished great nan of Rylan and Cory, a loving mother in law and a dear sister.

Carol left school aged 14 years old where she went to work on Jones’ Pot Bank in Stoke, as a flower maker, as the years went on Carol showed her flower making skills to her grandchildren, but with play dough, all were highly impressed at her ability. Carol loved her family, she loved a house full to the brim of children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, she was very family orientated and always there for them all,
her family describe her as the matriarch, the glue of the family.

Carol will be sadly missed but fondly remembered by all her loving family and many friends.

Due to the current restrictions a private funeral service will take place at Bradwell Crematorium. A memorial service to celebrate Carol’s life will take place later in the year.

Family flowers only please. Donations in memory of Carol would be gratefully received for Ward 222 (NIV) Critical Care Royal Stoke via the funeral director.

  1. My dear Beautiful Mama, I cannot believe I will no longer walk into your house and be greeted by your beautiful smile and a loving hug. No longer will I be able to sit beside you and hold your precious hand. No longer will I be able to sit and talk to you about this and that. Gone are our days where David and I would take you to Tunstall, Bridgemere, Freeport and Hanley. No more cups of tea and planning birthday surprises for the children. No longer will I be able to tell you that I love you all the world, all the moon and all the stars and for you to say it back to me. My heart is shattered into a million pieces. Your my mama and my world and the only thing that comforts me is that you are free from pain and that you no longer rely on your oxygen machine or ventilator. I know that when I held onto you as you left us that you reached for our Lords hand who guided you safely to Heaven and reunited with your loved ones who went before you. Eternally in my heart, your love I will carry in my heart and soul until one day your hand is guiding me to be by your side. Love infinity, your little girl Jayne xxxxx

  2. I miss you so much Mama. A week ago today we gathered as a family to say our goodbyes to you. It’s heartbreaking without you, my heart yearns for you, my eyes want to see your beautiful smile, my arms want to hug you, my hands want to feel you hold my hand and squeeze it, me ears need to hear your voice, I miss our chats so much, I want to give you a big kiss and tell you that you mean the absolute world to me……but you know this, I know that your with me everywhere I go because you told me you would be and I think of you everyday. I’ve been baking Dad a fruitcake and he’s been up to see us today with Harry and Sue. I made a strawberry crumble and topped it with some fresh cream. I wish so much I could bake for you again, every time I reach for my tins I smile because you gave them to me. Life just isn’t the same without you mama, there’s a huge hole and half my heart went with you to Heaven. I hope it’s all you imagined, I hope and pray that all your loved ones gathered to greet you into your eternal home. Every night I open my bedroom window and I blow you a kiss and tell you I love you all the world, all the moon and all the stars. I close my eyes and I see your beautiful face. You know I have photos of you all around our home, literally everywhere, I’ve added new ones to the ones I’ve had up for ages, I see you smiling at me and I feel contented. Missed and yearned for Mama, my everything. We all love you and think of you all the time. We had a little red butterfly in the garden yesterday, it landed on Bella’s knee then flew onto my arm…..”that’s Nannie” said Bella……I know your with us always. Love you so much forever, always, infinity…..all the world, all the moon and all the stars. Your little girl; Jayne xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
