In Loving Memory of


Susan Elizabeth Birkett

Mum was very loving, emotional, unconventional, funny, immensely caring and a great cuddler. She had lots of friends and family and as we can’t physically have many people attending the funeral service we thought it would be a nice idea if people could leave messages or memories of a fun time with Mum or a funny anecdote. We want to celebrate her life and remember the good times.

If you have any photos from any time in her life please could you also add them to this online book.

Many thanks her daughters Gail and Clare
