HELEN GRACE JOYCE  c1884-c1945 (by Mike McDonald in 2002)

Aunty Grace became a Norwood Nurse and went out East: first to China and then toIndia, where she met her husband, Alfred Tapping, who my Grandmother’s family didn’t really like because he wasn’t quite “top drawer”.  I think he was a tea planter or something in the colonial service.  They came back and went to live near Wimborne with Aunt Dora.Aunty Grace died when she was in her 60s or 70s.  She had been an invalid as a child with rickets, and she had a bad heart.  She had weak health, according to my mother.
