If I could sum up my grandma in one word it would be caregiver. She was always caring for people. She cared for her grandkids. She cared for her great grandkids. She cared for her grandkids friends. She cared for anyone who showed up on her doorstep. She cared for the elderly residents well into her elder years. She loved fiercely and completely. I will miss that love more than I can adequately express.

So many fond memories…two of my favorites were from when I was very young. One time we picked cherries from her tree, pitted them, made homemade crust and then made a cherry pie. I’m sure that pie took her 3 times as long with me “helping” but she chose to spend that special time with me and I still remember it decades later. Another time she pulled me up on her lap and taught me how to embroider. I had always been fascinated by the lovely pillowcases and dresser scarves that she would embroider and she was kind enough to teach me that skill. Her tenderness and patience meant so very much to me.

You are a huge part of who I am today and I will miss you tremendously, Grandma. I know you are getting true joy from cooking for the angels, but please take a few moments to put your feet up too. I love you.

I had the pleasure of working with Elda for many years at the Nursing Home in Sumner. She was a very caring and giving individual. Elda will be greatly missed but memories of her will remain with us forever.

Grandma, you were always in the kitchen “fixing something to eat” and making sure that none of your guests went hungry. I laugh every time I think about how you were so little but man.....you could eat (unfortunately I did not inherit that from you) 😁.
You were always so busy scooting all around the house picking up this or cleaning up that, but you always had a minute to hold a little one.
You had the cutest little giggle and a purse full of gum (Chad stay out of grandma’a purse 🤣). You will be missed! Love you.
