Jill Shoesmith

Some of you may remember Jill Shoesmith who lived in Cotton Lane for many years with her husband Michael and children Paul and Claire. They were early members of the Moseley Society. Jill worked at Wake Green Surgery and Michael, when he could spare time from his work as a member of Birmingham 13’s Editorial Board, at Pebblemill with the BBC.

We are very sad to tell you that Jill died on 16 April. She was in hospital being treated for a serious kidney problem and was about to be discharged when it was found out that she had contracted the Covid-19 virus from which, unfortunately, she did not recover.
