My mother Jane Yerbury Sweeney, who was born on 7th. January 1920 and died on 1st. June 2018 at Newbegin House in Beverley, was an extraordinary woman. Brought up in Kensington and Sussex, she was educated at home, mostly by herself. She read widely, but obtained no formal qualifications.
Her mother had been expelled from boarding school while her parents were living abroad, and her father, although he eventually qualified and became an eminent doctor with a successful practice in Kensington, had hated school, so the couple decided to keep Jane and her younger siblings at home.
Long before La La Land there was Judy Garland, star of stage and screen, larger than life in lavish Technicolor musicals.
