Black Country Bugle - - YOUR LETTERS - Shaun O’reilly os­haun­y48reilly@ya­hoo.com

MY mother-in-law, Mrs Betty Welch, who lives in Pen­snett, was 90 years old on Sun­day, Novem­ber 4.

Her hus­band, de­ceased now, was Frank Welch, who was goalie for Marsh and Bax­ters butch­ery firm, where they both worked many moons ago.

Betty was born in 1928 in Lye, then moved to Bri­er­ley hill with her hus­band Frank. She worked as a school din­ner lady at both Bent Street School, and John Street School, in Bri­er­ley Hill, and also for many years on the rail­way at Brock­moor Sta­tion.

Her fam­ily, daugh­ter Gil­lian, grand­sons Nathan and Ni­cholas, their part­ners Lucy and Laura, and great grand­chil­dren Oliver and Esme, plus all her friends and neigh­bours would like to wish her a very happy birth­day. I’d also add a big thank you to Ben Pierce and He­len Ni­chols from the Mor­ris­sons store at Kingswin­ford for pre­sent­ing a lovely birth­day ham­per to Betty, also Wayne her hair­dresser at Bri­er­ley Hill for a lovely bou­quet.
