My Aunty died this morning. Did you know her?

My mothers sister Cecilia Hanwell nee Rodgers was born in 1928 and died this morning. She would have been 90 in July.
She worked in the Bone Yard Offices as a young girl and lived at Aunty Jane McNeill's house Tyne View which was straight across from the Bone Yard. She got to work and back in Charlie Sculler's little boat.
In later years she worked at the Pyrotenax, in the offices.
Her Husband Stan Hanwell was a Navigator on Lancaster Bombers WW2. He died in 2010.
