Grandma Ann had a big heart full of love to give to us grandkids and was always there for us. She often put others before herself so that we all could have comfort. Growing up I remember how she put so much of herself into her garden and her cooking. I often heard her humming along to music as she prepared meals for her family. Her secret ingredient was always love. Looking back I think she showed us how much she cared through her cooking. With the recent snow here, I remembered how Grandma Ann would make us Snow Ice cream when we were kids. Those were fun times.
I also remember how much my Grandma Ann loved her parents. When her dad was sick and in his last days, I remember how she would visit him every single day and spend time with her mother. I like to think they found comfort with one another through the hard time they were going through. My Grandma Ann visited her mother often after Grandpa Simon died. I remember going with them to Barney’s bookstore and we all picked out books. That was something I had in common with them both. I loved to read too. Grandma Ann still enjoyed her stories even after her eyes got bad, only instead of books, she watched her stories on tv. She loved a good mystery and would often try to solve it before the detectives on tv.
Grandma Ann loved babies and we kept planning a visit for her to meet our newest edition, but sadly, Grandma Ann did not get to meet the baby. She predicted that she would be a happy easygoing baby with a sweet nature. She couldn’t have been more right about that! I wish she could have seen her sweet little baby smile and held her in her arms. I know it would have brightened her day.
I miss Grandma Ann. She was a big part of my childhood and I will always cherish the memories we had together. She was good to me and always made me feel loved and for that, I will always be grateful. She is home now with Jesus and her family who went home before her.
