Mrs Alice Cassidy

Alice Cassidy lived a long life. She was born in Belfast, Alice Elliott, but moved to England when she was nineteen to marry Frank Cassidy. They lived in Islington and had their first child Anne. In the sixties and seventies they lived in Tottenham and added Samantha and Frankie to their family. In 1980 they moved to Ilford and lived out the rest of their married lives, making new friends and having a renewed social life in and around Redbridge. Some years after Frank died Alice moved to Loughton to live close to her daughter Sam. She had constant companionship with Sam, Frank and Anne and their families. She had four wonderful grandchildren; Jack Cassidy, Alice and Josie Morey and Benjamin Cassidy.

She was a wonderful parent and friend; chatty and funny and with very firm opinions. Her children loved her dearly.

Dementia took away a lot of her personality but it could not take away the person she had been and the memories she has left for her family and friends. This is why we are asking for donations, instead of flowers, to Alzheimer's Society (Registered Charity No. 296645), to help continue their valuable work. Thank you

Messages of condolence

Alice may be gone from your sight but never your hearts and memories.. Alice may you RIP love the Priddle family x x

Mrs Anne Priddle

Thank you Aunt Alice for everything that you did for us. We will never forget the good times; all the incredible Christmas dinners, or piled into the boot of your Cortina estate for trips to the seaside, or hand-stand competitions in the park with my Dad. Always positive, smart, witty, and good natured. You will be sorely missed. Love John, Sarah, Sam and Dorothy Elliott

Mr John Elliott

Thinking of you all and of the happy memories I have of Alice. She was always good fun and understanding of us ‘youngsters’ particularly making sure we’d had something to eat before we went out and plenty of toast for the morning after. Happy memories from those days that I hope will comfort Alice’s loved ones at this sad time. Alice will be much missed but lives on. Vanessa xx
