Our Claire shared this today: "Love you Aunt Othie.
My grandmother’s cousin died last week, and it was always striking to me how much she sounded just like my Mimi. Years ago after my Mimi died I called her to chat and just listen to her sweet voice. She was always on the move, so busy traveling and having a good life. Her death was not good after an accident because then she went to the hospital and caught C Diff there, but thankfully that was a blip of time in her almost century-long life. Dad reminded me she worked in an ammunition’s plant in Indiana during WWII. A strong, beautiful, kind woman."
