Mary Clarke and myself volunteered at the Silver Birch unit painting with the residents. We were both very fond of Maire as she was such a character and we had great fun together. I used to put “Goodbye Johnny Dear” on spotify on my phone for her and encourage her to take part in the painting. She was always delighted with the work she did and would say “Did I do that?” She always had such lovely stories to tell of cycling and dancing at the crossroads and people she knew. We used bright colours to paint with and when she used pink she would always say “pink, to make the fellas wink”. I have often thought about Maire since we had to stop going last March. Sincere condolences to all the family. Annabel Potterton
