She first lived in a room on St. Peter's Rd, then a room on New Walk. By then she had two kids, Terry and Anne, and got a house on Slawson St, finally moving to Saffron Lane area.Terry went to school with Lynda Callaghan at the new Holy Cross on Stonesby Avenue.. He later went to Gateway and Ann went to English Martyrs
