Sadly John and Terry died within days of each other aged 3 and 2 respectively, of pneumonia.
Edwin continued to work at the railway works in Eastleigh and Teresa owned and ran a second ha
nd shop in Southampton Road, Eastleigh. She has been described by some one who remembered her (though not a family member) as "an Irish lady of uncertain temper" and judging by some of the tales told to me by my mother, Josie and my aunt Winnie, she was a rather formidable woman. However she is believed to have suffered from very painful rheumatoid arthritis, so can perhaps be excused her "uncertain temper" and is otherwise remembered as being generous and kind. Teresa died on 29th October 1956 in Eastleigh, Hampshire, of a brain haemorrhage. She is buried in Eastleigh cemetery. Edwin continued a widower until his death in December 1969 from lung cancer. He was buried with his wife.
