Hi All,
Been a while since I last visited Gransnet but I have had such sad news this morning that I had to share.
Jingles who was one of Gransnets first members sadly passed away on Thursday after recovering well from a hip replacement after a fall, but then on Wednesday she suffered a pulmonary embolism and sadly passed away in hospital.
Those of us that remember Jingle will do so with fond memories of her sparky personality and lively debate, I will miss her.

Glass or two, is this the “Jingles who returned with similar names and more recently as Gone Girl

I didn’t always agree with her but she made me laugh. RIP 💐

glassortwo Sat 13-Feb-21 13:38:32

Not sure what name Jingles has been using but she has had a few over the years.

I'm not sure if she's the poster I think she is but regardless it's sad news.

Yes Iam.
Oh Glass that’s made me so sad. She posted on Twitter only last week I think.
She still had a zest for life, didn’t she, and loved her family so much.
Thank you for letting us know.

That is sad. I enjoyed her contributions - she usually sparked things up a bit! flowers

glassortwo Sat 13-Feb-21 13:43:17

Jane I was talking to her last week on Twitter and she was doing really well after her op.

How sad. I remember Jingles calling a spade a spade! RIP

annsixty Sat 13-Feb-21 13:43:56

Not always my favourite poster but sad news indeed.
She adored her Gs’s and I send my condolences to her family.
You always knew where you stood with her, a spade was a spade sometimes even a shovel.
RIP Jingles.

I'm really sad to hear this. She was a great personality. RIP jings.

Thanks for letting us know, glassortwo. I will always remember Jingle as a feisty poster - occasionally feisty enough to be banned, but usually bouncing back under one name or another. RIP Jingle.

Iam64 Sat 13-Feb-21 13:45:51

Thanks for the confirmation Jane Ainsworth.
This is such very sad news. Jingles was full of life and brought some laughter to many threads.
Sincere condolences to her loved ones x

Jings was very much a 'marmite' character, but she was never boring and always called a spade a spade, usually with some very fruity language.
She will be sadly missed.
RIP Jingle.

lemongrove Sat 13-Feb-21 13:50:51

I do remember Jingles, she was a poster who spoke plainly and was banned ( wrongly in my view.)
However, there is life outside GN and am sure other forums
Suited her better.RIP Jingles.

seacliff Sat 13-Feb-21 13:52:08

How sad. She was an interesting, unpredictable poster and although she broke the Gransnet rules (whatever they are) she was fun and had a warm heart. I missed her posts when GN banned her.

Condolences to her family. RIP Jings.

Marmight Sat 13-Feb-21 13:53:40

So sorry to hear this. She was a feisty, outspoken, over the top character. I missed her when she was banned - numerous times! She was one of a kind. RIP ‘Jingles’ 😢

moomin Sat 13-Feb-21 13:58:34

Sad news, a feisty and outspoken poster. RIP Jingles

Iam64 Sat 13-Feb-21 14:03:49

Jingles was mentioned by many during the recent attempts to persuade GNHQ not to ban MawB, or anyone, for life. All the references to Jingles were affectionate and many posters couldn’t understand her permanent ban. I enjoyed her especially as Gone Girl

cavewoman Sat 13-Feb-21 14:06:38

How very sad. She was the reason I joined Gransnet. flowers

merlotgran Sat 13-Feb-21 14:08:58

It's terribly sad news. Despite her own problems jingl snuck in the wire to send me a loving and supportive pm. I always hoped she'd be able to return as IMO she was one of the best.

Thinking of her family, especially her adored grandsons.
