Ivy Alice DANDO

Ivy Alice Dando (1904-1992)

Photographs, cine and video footage of my Granny Hibbitt (born Ivy Alice Dando: 1904-1992). Known as Isey, she was born above her grandmother's sweet shop known as the Golden Butterfly in Saffron Walden in Essex. Her father was a dentist and, by 1910, the family had moved to Plymouth in Devon.

Isey was employed in the telephone exchange where presumably she met my Grandpa who also worked for the G.P.O. (General Post Office). Much of their married life was spent in Tavistock during which time she worked for a solicitor's firm in Plymouth. They retired to East Allington in the South Hams area of Devon and Isey outlived her husband by 20 years.

Isey's hobbies included making wine and collecting shells on the nearby Devon beaches. She then attached them to terracotta pots using Polyfilla or sometimes she used tiny square tiles and she'd let me have a go too. I remember her as kind and diplomatic with a vivacious personality and a lively sense of humour.
