18th May, 1962: RE-UNITED AFTER 41 YEARS

WHEN Miss Elsie Fisher left Corringham, near Gainsborough, to set sail for Montreal, Canada, in 1921 she never thought it would be 41 years before she would once again set foot in England and be re-united with her sisters.

Miss Fisher (now Mrs Pavey), mother of three and grandmother of six, was re-united with two of her three sisters in Gainsborough this week. They are Mrs Maud Middleton of Edward Road and Mrs Alice Fisher of Asquith Street.

A former ladies’ maid, Mrs Pavey went to Montreal to prepare for her marriage to “a boy she met during the First World War”. Four months after arrival in Montreal they were married, and two years later they moved to New York where they have lived ever since.
