My Ma-in-Law died in Burton upon Trent at about 2.45 today but it was good news because she needed to be released. She was 97.
Born and raised in Hebburn DT was married to Richard (Richie or Dick) Tweddell who died some years ago and was a shipyard man. He left the local yards to work across the world as a Naval Architect although the family remained in Beaumont Tce in Jarrow.
I am proud to be her son in law.
Dorothy worked in Hawthorn Leslie as an engraver during the war years. It is something that she has always talked about!
She is survived by Jean and Dorothy and of course many grandchildren and gg's too.
