Jean is a hairdresser by trade.   Her first marriage, pictured here was to Graham Philip who was born on 7th January 1935.  They married on 2nd September 1962  and many of our Quilietti family attended the wedding as you can see from the photo below.

They had two sons.  Colin, the eldest, was born on 3rd March 1968 . Steven was born on the 15th February 1969.

Steven has memories of visiting Granny Quilietti when she lived in her house in Niddrie. At this time Granny was bed-ridden and in bad health.  She loved when her family visited and loved nothing better than frightening the living daylights out of her grandchildren and great grandchildren.   On one such visits Jean had left them in care of Grandma whilst she went to the shops.  When the boys were quietly behaving and sitting at the foot of her bed she enjoyed the moment by sitting up and screeching at the top of her voice.  Watching their re-action to the corpse like granny would be one of the highlights of her day.    She really had a great sense of humour.  Granny died in the year 1972.

Steven has four children.

with Jim

She and Jim  left Scotland to stay with her brother Ernie for a few years but they have now returned to Scotland.  Graham Philip died on 6th August 2002. Jim has also now recently passed on.  Recollections of Jim are of a gentle man who made Jean very happy.  They enjoyed a few years in South Africa with family before Jim fell ill.  They then returned to Scotland.
