Janet Doreen Kentish – Eulogy

Our wonderful mother Janet (‘Blinkie’ , ‘Jannie’) was a wonderfully caring person to us, her extended family and her many precious and valued friends. A fabulous mother.

There are four of us: me, Wendy, David and Nigel. Mum produced us in five years, between 1950 and 1955, and this very brave strategy really set the tone for our early lives, and her incredibly busy life as a totally committed mother to four very different children. That commitment and great love did not waiver once in her very long and sometimes difficult life.
