This is your Life: Jean Pietru (formally Parsons)
I was born Jean Parsons at the General Lying-In hospital, Waterloo in January 1930. As a child, I lived with my parents and brother in a two room property above a sweet shop. From the age of two and a half up until five I attended Joanna Junior School, our family then moved to a flat in Lambeth and I switched to Walnut Tree Walk School. I stayed at this school until I was evacuated to Exeter in 1939, I lived with two different foster families. When I returned to London I went to Vauxhall Junior School, I passed all my exams and moved to Vauxhall Central School, I left at the age of fourteen to work as a book keeper earning a guinea a week. That same year I joined a youth club where I met my future husband, Ted. We started off as friends because he was much older than me. When Ted was called upon for his national service in the RAF, he started to write to me. Things progressed, when I was nineteen we got engaged, married when I was twenty two, and we lived together in just two rooms. By now I was working in the office of the Eldorado Ice Cream Company, I stayed until I got pregnant with my first child. I could no longer work full time, so, I worked from home trimming lamp shades, and in the evenings I washed bottles in a factory. By 1957 I had my second child, we were still living in two rooms, in 1959 we moved to a flat in Stockwell. Ted and I wanted our own home, that’s why we worked so hard, Ted was a lift engineer working all the overtime hours available. When the children were old enough to go to school, I went back to full time work as a civil servant. I also worked as a receptionist at a foot clinic every Saturday morning and at a betting shop in the afternoon. We took the children on camping holidays abroad because it was cheaper, in 1970 we finally bought our house in Norbury. When our finances improved Ted and I enjoyed travelling abroad to many different counties, by this time we had three lovely healthy grandchildren, who are all doing very well. At the age of sixty three I retired from the civil service, Ted and I spent sixty five years together, before he passed away. Even though life was tough early on, we had a great life together.
