It actually made the 'tabloid' press worldwide. Patricia was reportedly 5'4" and managed to break a bone in his throat!
Denis, reportedly, had urged the salesman to 'run for his life' as Partricia swung into action!

To top matters off, she was serverely reprimanded by the judge and threatened with contempt of court at the subesequent trial for giggling during proceedings with her female friend.


I like the sound of these Mathers (though obvously feel some sympathy for the poor traumatised - and injured- vacuum cleaner salesman)!

This family are inextricably involved in my mother's adoption and I'd love to find out more.

It means trying to contact descendants...IF there are any!

Thanks for taking an interest.
