My mother was born in Austria in 1927.  She had two youngers siblings - Elsa and Karl.

Father Karl Pierer
Mother Theresia Alesis (b.1908)

Mum came to England around 1946 and settled in Surrey.

She married an English man and they had three children, Jennifer, Kate and Dennis.

Her second marriage was to my father and they wed in 1966, after I was born. 

Mum was a housewife and extremely house-proud.  We lived in Horsell, Surrey.  They separated around 1979 and divorced shortly afterwards.

She met (Arthur Ernest) Ernie Freshwater and they eventually married in 1982 and lived in Ripley, Surrey.  Ernie had four grown up children. They were together until mum died in 1987.
