Kerry Therese Tickle
Kerry Tickle

Kerry lost her battle with cancer before Christmas. She was 62. Kerry possessed a warmth and honesty that people gravitated towards. She was practical and compassionate when people needed help and the worldis greatest cheerleader when there was something to be celebrated. Her energy and enthusiasm for life seemed boundless; actively involved with her four children's interests. In later years she turned to a wider community participation.


Daughter of Matt and Lucy Flanagan; Kerry married Rob Tickle in 1970. Kerry descends from the Blincos of Hedgerley. Her great, great grandparents, Joseph Blinco & Sarah Stannet and family migrated to Australia. Joseph Blinco is a bit of a mystery. Family stories suggest he did a runner after arriving in Victoria as nothing more was ever heard of him.

In 2008 Kerry & Rob visited Blencowe Hall which was in the process of being restored. The foreman was wonderful giving them a guided tour of the buildings with many photo opportunities.

Our condolences go to Rob, their children, David, Emma, Amy, Katherine and grandchildren.
