Granddaughter Libby said: “On November 4 2018, we had found out nanan had pancreatic cancer.

“This was devastating for us all as nanan had already fought non hodgekins lymphoma in 2001.

"Nanan started chemo in march 2019 and chose to take part in trials to see if her cancer could be cured.

"She had chemo for six months and battled on, knowing the cancer was incurable and there was no way to get rid of it.

"My beautiful nanan who meant the world to a lot of people lost her battle on December 15 2020 at Bassetlaw Hospice.

"I am wanting to keep my nanans memory alive and raise as much money and awareness, so I can help the thousands of people getting this sad news and fighting this horrible illness.”
