  1. No – I think it’s correct – Alan references the passing of Jo Shelton and the recent passing of Anne’s husband David. A Google search confirms the following
    Anne’s husband died on 11th June 1990, the year in which she was awarded the OBE for her valuable work to charities, especially the Not Forgotten Association. Her sister Jo became her closest companion, and whilst these should have been among her happiest years (she was still very much in demand), fate dealt a cruel blow. On 22nd July 1991, returning from a cabaret on the Isle of Man, Jo fell ill on the plane. She was taken to King’s College Hospital, London, but died in the operating theatre. Anne and her sister Eileen were devastated at the loss of their ‘baby sister’ and it was only through the love and support of Eileen, her niece Kelly and her religion (Anne was a devout Catholic) that she kept going.
