The photo on left was another party at the Inglewood house. Ilean was sitting on the sofa with her cousin, Karen Scott. Hazel Norrie was sitting by the fireplace.
The other photo was a gathering, perhaps at Hazel Norrie's retirement home. L-R - Keri Norrie, Hazel Norrie, Ilean and Lisa Nichols (Norrie).
Through the years we shared many enjoyable times with Ilean and her husband, John. The photo on the left is a Christmas dinner at our house in Inglewood. Everyone was in good spirits and the fun continued outside. The second photo was Ilean giving a good 'swing of the bat' at the pinata.
Ilean and I were second cousins. Hazel Norrie, my grandmother was the sister of Birdie - Ilean's mother. Ilean and I shared the love of outdoors and Scottish bagpipe music.
