Grandma was the strongest woman I know. She gave all of her love to everyone. She enjoyed going to school & sporting events with all her grand babies. She was our biggest fan and supporter. She loved her family, cooking & sewing. She will be truly missed.

Some of my fondest memories with grandma momma was when I would stay the night and grandpa Wharton was still alive. She would get us all fed and bathed and then we would all come together to read a book. I was not an easy child but she showered me with love in ways no one else did.
