Mary Elizabeth Workman
Lived in Frances Street
Kath's Memories of Mary
I knew her as she lived in the next street to us and her Irish mother was a friend of my Dad
She was a very good photographer and earned a living from it. She also worked some nights as a care assistant at a home
She loved fashion and design and was also a model
She was a very good artist and constantly drew ideas for dresses and fashion. She even as a kid did very professional stuff with twiggy type women wearing unusual clothes. She made her own wedding dress and the bridesmaid dresses.
She always wore funky stuff and made a lot of her clothes
I used to go to her house after school and one night her Ma had made some mince and gravy for her dad to come in to ....she kept picking at it and all of a sudden it was all gone!! She got into big trouble for it!
She was very slim and elegant and used to pretend to be a ballerina
She was a giggler and we laughed a lot on our way to and from Maggie Clitherows either on the bus or on bikesIf you have any feedback on this or other matter - Click Here
