Sarah Elizabeth Clarke (known within the family as Auntie Lizzie) born 1867 she married William Herbert (Uncle Billy) Uncle Billy died in 1948 aged 80 years and
they lived at 87 Cobden Street Leicester - she had no children of her own. But took on the responsibilty of her Sister Alices children including my Grandmother Maud.

She was a lovely - strong - lady with traits to her character that were not often liked - She was a Matriarchal figure - and therefore demanded respect... But an excellent cook and her garden was lovely. full of forget me nots.. For all her pretence at strictness and distance she kept a box of old dressing up clothes for my sister and I to play with --

She eventually died due to a broken hip and then pneaumonia...
