    Notes 
    • She was a great character. Everyone in the village came to her when they had a problem, and she was always ready to come to the rescue. The mother of one family had diphtheria and Drina moved in and took over. I remember how Drina used to cycle into the farmyard and perch on the window sill and chat to Mum through the window, laughing and joking and once telling her to take her elbows off the table. She used to come and see me after I was married and stayed with my sister in Berwick-on-Tweed. [Reminiscences, ARnJ 20 Aug 2008]
    • Her cousins remember her, in abt 1955, as very lively, talking fast & using 1920s slang. Others recall that on occasion she used to "swear like a trooper".
    • suffered badly from arthritis in later life
