County Times:

A native of Kidwelly, Carmarthenshire, Nance says she enjoyed a very happy childhood with her three older siblings.

During the Second World War, she married Arthur ‘Roy’ Griffiths and brought up their three children, Wynne, Margaret and Hugh, in Kidwelly before moving to Luton in the early 1970s.

Roy sadly passed away in 1982 but Nance remained in Luton before moving in 2000 to live in Newtown then she moved to Maes-y-Wennol Care Home 15 years later.
