During her later years in Lowestoft, she apparently, more or less, lived as a recluse although she always kept in touch with her brother William, relying on him for advice. She had not taken kindly to her son's marriage.
After her only son Jack's wife died, it seemed to him to be an obvious solution to bring his mother to live with him as he had been receiving complaints that she suffered hallucinations. His mother then looked after Joyce until his marriage with Babs. She was good to the little girl and upset when she died.
Rose Kate did not approve of the Jack's second marriage, as on the one occasion he took Babs home to meet her, she said "Why did he want to get married again when he already had a good home!"
A house in Romford was bought for Rose Kate and all was well for a few years but during the war she began having hallucinations again. Babs visited her with Ann & Hilary to make sure she was all right as it was then impossible for Jack to get away. After some consideration, Babs was invited to enter the house and as time passed she became more friendly, although she was very worried about the people who walked over bedroom ceiling and shone torches on her. However, on a second visit Rose Kate invited Jack and Babs to live with her but said she could not have the children.
