Mrs Madge Andrews

January - 07 May 2015

Resident of The Royal Star & Garter Homes, 2010-2015

Madge was born in Strood, Kent, in 1909.  She became an apprentice to a Royal dressmaker, delivering clothes to Windsor by donkey and cart.  Madge was married in 1934 and her husband served in the Army.

Madge had three children: two sons and a daughter who, sadly, she lost to cancer at the age of 50.  She also enjoyed spending time with her seven grandchildren.

In April 2014, The Royal Star & Garter Homes was proud to help celebrate Madge’s 105th birthday with a special tea party in her honour, joined by Solihull’s Mayor, friends, family and fellow residents.

Madge came to live at The Royal Star & Garter Homes in 2010, where she could benefit from specialist nursing care and the varied programme of activities.  Still active at 105, Madge loved quizzes, ‘movement to music’, volleyball, and crafts.  Madge will be remembered as great fun to be around, and much missed by everyone at the Charity.
