Granny Blossom's Sisters

Granny Blossom was the youngest of the Uttley sisters. This page shows Evelyn, the middle sister. She worked for MacConachies Pickles and was the only person who held the recipe for their Pan Yan pickle. She and husband never had any children.

The bottom right photo shows Evelyn, Granny Blossom, their friend Nora, and my Granny Allison.

Alice was the eldest of the sisters and stayed at home to look after their father. She would not get married until he died and when he died she and her long term boyfrient married. They were both aged 48, so like her sisters, she did not have any children.

They were all such loving, gentle women, and would have made wonderful mothers and grand-mothers.
