YOUR GRANDMOTHER
Blanche Mary Dickinson Horner

She was an extremely clever woman, educated at the then best school in London.  Your grandfather’s sister who was there at the same time, took her friend home to May Place for the holidays and she and Edward met.  She had a beautiful voice and played the piano extremely well.  She acted and was artistic.  She was a very good and careful house keeper, looking after everything herself, even though she had lots of servants.  She sewed beautifully, making with ease the clothes for all seven of us.  She danced and ice skated beautifully.  Her garden was always lovely.  Grandfather did not dance nor was he musically inclined, but they adored each other and he loved to take her out and see her enjoy herself while he sat and admired her.  They adored their children just as your father adored all of you.  As you can see she was very pretty and had a lovely figure despite having nine babies.  I look back on her as a wonderful woman.  Quite outstanding.

Archibald Herbert “Archie” Horner (1879-1916) #

Born: 05 Mar 1879, Cheshunt, Hertfordshire, England; Died: 13 Apr 1916, WWI (kia); Buried: Menim Road South Military Cemetery, Ypres, Belgium.
