I worked with Theresa at Kings Hotel in the 70’s and 80’s. I was at school and later at uni and worked in the dining room during he holidays. I would have attended her funeral but am presently overseas. I really liked her and respected her. She suffered terrible tragedy in her life time but was always ready with a smile. She was so kind to her grandchildren after they lost their mum. She was a legend in her time and please pass on my condolences to her family. RIP with her beloved Harry.
So sorry to have just read this. My condolences to Dutchy, Anne and Phil . Your mum was a lovely friendly lady. Happy memories of Thompson Street.
