“A WARTIME evacuee who fled her Channel Islands home to avoid a German internment camp has died peacefully on Teesside, aged 101.

Molly Foster was said by her family to have been a “remarkable and inspirational woman”.

She died at Nunthorpe Oaks Care Home on March 30, where staff said she was a very popular, well-liked resident.

Senior representative at the home Tracy Corner said: “Molly was a very popular lady with all the residents here and we will all miss her very much.

“She was a character, with a very interesting past.”

During the German occupation of Jersey at the start of the Second World War, anyone born outside the island faced transfer to an internment camp for the duration of hostilities.”
