  • Notes 
    • 1 Jean was the fun loving member of the family, always cheerful, and
      ready for a party.



      2 She met Bill Potter at a party given for Arthur Scoones at our
      house, when he came to us on his release from P.O.W. camp in 1945.
      There were several of these parties and my main recollection of Bill
      and Jean is of them sitting out on thstairs
      smoking and chatting, oblivious to the party - so unlike Jean!



      3 Jean went ou to NZ to marry Bill and later had a family in
      Palmerston North.

      Her youngest daughter Elisabeth was crippled from birth, a great
      tragedy for them all, eventually dying at age 14.



      4 Bill only lasted a few years after that, and Jean, who had been so
      bright as a youngster had a rather lonely and cheerless old age.
