Annette Dickson Milne
Help us celebrate our Mum, Annette! Please share your stories and photos, and invite others who remember Annette. Thank you
Our mum was born in 1943 at Maryfield Hospital in Dundee to Betty Dickson and William Dow. She had 3 siblings, Billy, Janice and Bobby. She was married to Edward Joseph Milne (Ted) with 3 children; Michael (deceased), Fiona and Andrew and 5 grandchildren Kerry-Anne, Callum, James, Rachel and Scott. She had a wonderfully adventurous life with Ted. From her 20s, she lived in Africa (Ghana, Kenya, Uganda, Liberia) before moving with Ted to Doha, Qatar and then back to Africa for a few years in Namibia before retiring to Simonstown in Cape Town. She was a woman of small stature with a massive heart, a quick wit, a brilliant memory, fabulous general knowledge and a feisty Scottish temper who loved to cook and entertain people. She loved Ted and her family tremendously with an extreme soft spot for all her grandchildren. As part of her and Ted's adventure, she lived through some significant moments in history; the Idi Amin regime in Uganda, The Samual Doe coup in Liberia, the 1st Gulf war and in South Africa she was there to see Nelson Mandela become the first democratically elected President. She took this all in her stride and made great friends along the way. She will be dearly missed by us all and we can take some small comfort in knowing that she is now happily with Ted, Michael and Callum. Love you lots Mum.
