My brother is visiting me tomorrow, I'm hoping he has more up to date information about Joyce.
A few months ago someone called Hutchinson died in South Shields, his obituary said that he left
behind some siblings, one was called Joyce so I'm assuming that was her and that she was still alive
then. Joyce will be 76/77 years old now, if I get any more information on her I'll let you know.

Turns out that my brother knows less than me, he hasn't seen her for some time but like me the believes
that she is no longer living in South Shields. She will be 77 years old in the next few months.

She had family, and they lived somewhere up the top end of Erskine road, I think it was Marine Approach.

Here's a photo of Joyce and Bill, with my father and his sister Lil (my aunty Lilian) I don't know
who the other two ladies are.
