This is my aunt Athena she died in 1942 at the age of 21. She had complained of a headache and went to have a lay down on the bed next to her baby son Gary and never woke up. Later we had found out she had died due to an inflammation of the brain. She was such a beautiful young women of a Greek back ground born to George and Silvia Parris and much loved by all who knew her. Athena was married to Clifford William James Cheshire (Uncle Billy) on 21 September in 1940, they were both 18. On 11 April 1942 their son Gary was born. Uncle Billy was fighting in Malaya when he lost his life in February of 1942 never knowing he had a son or that his beloved wife was to die not long after him. Athena died never knowing she had lost her Billy.

A tragic love story of 2 wonderful people who will never be forgotten.
