Eileen Adele FORD (1914-1995)

Eileen Adele FORD,1 daughter of Arthur Samuel FORD (1875-1942) and Catherine SHERIDAN (1885?-1968), was born on 16 March 1914 in Bathurst, NSW.2

Eileen married Reginald Woodlands and had four children, Reginald Brian, Ronald, Daphne and Aileen Clare. When they were still quite young Reginald deserted her leaving her with the four children. In 1946 or 1947, she started a relationship with Percival Charles Goldspink. They couldn't marry until Reginald was presumed dead, which they appeared to believe was after an absence of fifteen years. They married in Canberra on 4th September in the early 1960s. They had four children, Carol Anne (b. 23 Dec 1948 Sydney NSW; d. 10 Jan 1998); Michael John, Stephen Robert and Gail Lorraine. . The Goldspink children's surname was changed to Miller in the early 1960s for reasons unknown. Percival Charles worked three jobs at the same time for many, many years to support his family which included the four children who were not his own. His daughter Gail describes him as "the best father anyone could ever wish for". She also says "my mother had a very hard life but was still one in a billion too. Best ever!!). Percival died in Canberra hospital on 22nd December 1994 just seven months before Eileen's death.2

Eileen died (aged 81) on 8 July 1995 at her daughter Gail's home in Gordon, ACT.2

Hi John and Ellen,
I have just looked up my mothers family record on your site and noticed a few things that are not quite correct. My mother was Eileen Adele Ford. Mum told me she was born in Bathurst. Mum married Reginald Woodlands first and had four children, Reginald Brian, Ronald, Daphne and Aileen Clare. When they were still quite young her husband deserted her leaving her with four small children. Mum started a relationship with my father in 1946/47 and his name was Percival Charles Goldspink. They couldn't marry until mums first husband was missing for fifteen years thus presumed dead so married in Canberra 4th September in the early 1960s. Mum and dad had four more children, Carol Ann 1948, Micheal John 1951, Stephen Robert 1952 and Gail Lorraine 1953. (thats me) It's very important to me that Dad be listed as Mums' last husband as he looked after Mum and four small children then they had another four being my full sister and brothers. Dad worked three jobs at the same time for many, many years to support us all and was the best father anyone could ever wish for. My mother had a very hard life but was still one in a billion too. Best ever!! Mum passed away at my house on the 8th July 1995, seven months after my father died in Canberra hospital 22nd December 1994.
I hope you can rectify Mums record. Thank you for recording this part of my family history.
Kind regards
Gail Pollock (Miller/ Goldspink)
