She was bad ass. Loved her, and will miss her.
One of my favorite memories was when she recounted a story from my youth. I had apparently been playing in the neighbor's pond (which I was not supposed to do, but unsurprisingly did), and returned home.
Grandma stated "You've been playing in Pete's pond again." and I apparently replied "How did you know?"
She then pointed at my muddy footwear, and I just said "Oh."

Mother of my daughter-in-law Kim Rose. Kim is an amazing person; she got that from her mother.

My grandmother was a very very strong willed woman and if someone got under her skin she was not having it, especially when it came to her family and friends. If someone had disrespected her or one of her family members I know for a fact that she would say, “ oh no you are not coming into my house and disrespecting my family that, I need you get the bleep out of my house right now”! If you needed anything she was always there for you, she would go to bat for you no matter how bad the Circumstances were. She was the most amazing Mother, Grandmother, friend wife Aunt, also so much more. She was an absolutely amazing bright light, now that’s shining down on us from heaven also reunited with family members up there with her. I will miss her for the rest of my life, but I know that she is still in my heart and soul also we will meet again in heaven. Honestly I believe that she’s trying to find John Wayne, if she did that they’re probably talking while they’re riding on horses 🐴. Rest In Peace Grandma I will always love you 😘
