Gran Nora…


Dorothy Le Tissier …. “Gran Nora”…. 1915 – 2008

Tonight my lovely Gran Nora died and went to be with Jesus. Whilst she had been poorly at Christmas after a fall I thought she was getting a bit better so it came as a real shock.

Gran Nora was an amazing woman and I loved her very, very much. She was stubborn to the end though and not always the easiest person when she was told to do something she didn’t want to do! (something that was becoming increasingly common as she became more poorly!) At least she no longer has any pain and I guess now we can rest secure in the knowledge that she is with her beloved husband Clarence and her son Stephen who died a few years ago, not to mention the fact that she is with her Saviour. Gran Nora lived through the occupation of Guernsey during the second world war with an unwavering faith that endured to the end. She has always been an inspiration to me… and of course I still think I was her favourite granddaughter!

I miss her already.

“Jesus said… ‘I am the resurrection and the life.
He who believes in me will live, even though he dies,
and whoever lives and believes in me will not die.”
– John 11:25-26

  1. its really nice……. but i dont agree with " favorite granddaughter" because i was blatantly the speacialist 🙂
    loveee xxxx

  2. Seems like she had a good innings, but even so it’s never easy.

    Praying for you and for the repose of her soul.

  3. Praying for you in your loss and her in her freedom. I wonder where you get your stubbornness from 😉 You’re very lucky indeed to have had a Gran Nora and I’m guessing her memory will remain strong within you. Have a long-distance hug!

  4. Love,
    I’m sorry. I know you will miss her terribly and its an awful lot to take in all at once. Hugs and prayers from across the sea.
