Dan continued:  “Johannah was first and foremost a truly amazing mother to seven children – Louis (24), Lottie (19), Félicité (17), and two sets of twins, Phoebe and Daisy (13) and Ernest and Doris (3)  – whose individual talents and success are testament to the principles and beliefs she instilled in them. 

“She was also an incredibly proud grandmother to Freddie.”
