Be sure to post in this thread when the Queen dies; “Elizabeth Mountbatten-Windsor, former mother-in-law of Princess Diana, has died.”

Is this selective rage; I seem to recall saying something similar when star comedian/personality and half of the very famous Stiller & Meara comedy duo, Anne Meara, died - only to have her obit posted on Fringes of Fame thread as ‘mother of Ben Stiller’.  Kindly place your faux complaint up your leather chaps.

I met Michael Madsen a couple of years ago. Despite his image he was a really nice down to earth guy

His wife, former Miss Mississippi Christine Kozlowski Hand, 33, confirmed the account.

Good spot!

*Born Daisy Gwendoline Fuller in Romford, Essex in October 1919 according to records.
*Living according to all 5 family trees on Ancestry which include her (one profile of her updated as recent as September 2020)
*Based in Hereford, Herefordshire at the last publicly available census (2005)
*Searched the GRO for Daisy Fuller (maiden name)/Daisy Letts (married name). Nothing since 2005.

So all evidence would suggest, yes, Rose West's mum is still alive. :o


Now that the GRO Index has been updated, I can reveal that Rose West's mum, Daisy Letts née Fuller died in the third quarter of 2020, just short of 101 (2–3 months before my post above).
 

FULLER, DAISY  GWENDOLINE   1919  
GRO Reference:  DOR  Q3/2020 in HEREFORDSHIRE  (511-1A)  Entry Number 521079681

What a thoroughly sad story from beginning to end. She made her own choices in life but a paupers grave with no-one at her funeral is so very tough to read.

Yeah, the fact that she probably had to fight cancer without any care of her relatives or surroundings is heartbreaking…

Christ that's a name I haven't heard... well, since 1996. Am I remembering rightly that Max Clifford was her PR guy and he leant on her to try and keep all eight babies rather than let some die to ease the burden on the rest?

Clifford was involved, as was the News of the World (see second link in my original post), but how much pressure he may have exerted we'll never know.
