After her mother’s death Mary and her sister, Freda came to live in a bungalow in Ambrose Rise in Wheatley. In 2009, due to poor health she moved to the Triangle Nursing Home. Mary died there on March 3rd 2011. Mary was born in 1923 as Phyllis Mary Sturch, presumed to be the daughter of Phyllis Mary Sturch (nee Burrows) and Newton G Sturch of Great Milton, married on 2 June 1917 as shown in the photo, but not within the genealogy section. It is presumed that Mary never married as she kept the Sturch name.

There is a blue folder on the reference shelf of the Burrows family of Great Milton.
