ADD A MEMORY
Rebecca Schriber

Margaret and I wanted to share some special memories of Mother. She loved her church and helped a make the Chrismon tree decorations and quilts for the bazaar. She made many of our clothes, with matching hand knit sweaters. Formal dresses as well. She took classes in cake decorating, ceramics, and china painting - we were the fortunate recipients of her creations. She enjoyed crossword puzzles, watching the hummingbirds, game shows, UGA football tailgating, and Wheel of Fortune. Memories from Matt -feeding the ducks at the lake
- playing kings on the corner at the card table
- Ice cream and those peanut butter chocolate chip cookies from Kroger
From Meg -Such joy going to visit grandma at the lake....
Trips to the dollar store and making our own "pound puppies"
Making placemats out of old greeting cards and contact paper
Singing Puff the Magic Dragon on the open roads with the windows down
Grandma's frozen fruit salad
Never missed a Wheel of Fortune episode
Always up for a crossword puzzle challenge
Oatmeal cream pies (for Matt) and Little Debbie Cakes (for Meg)
After dinner boat rides
Bubble Baths
From Liz -One memory that I always found humorous was the "grandma threat" of discipline I received. I was misbehaving (completely out of character for me) at grandma's house. I'm pretty sure it involved scaring Ray with the troll dolls from the toy chest upstairs. Grandma was not amused.and told me "you're going to have to go out and pick your switch!" I was confused by this unfamiliar term. "Grandma what's a switch?" She gave me a look of aghast and explained that I would have to pick a stem for my punishment. The look on her face when I asked what a switch was priceless, and will always make me smile.
Another great memory was trying on my mom's wedding dress at grandma's house in 2014. A fun trip to Macon included myself trying to squeeze into my mom's wedding dress. The zipper war was lost (not going to happen unless I fasted 40 days and nights).

Margaret,
I wanted to extend my loving sympathy to you and your family. Believe me, I understand what a loss you are experiencing.
I have fond memories of both of your parents on just about every Sunday of our childhood at “Vineville”. They would speak to me and make me feel special. Trips to spend the day at Lake Sinclair on the water were some of the most fun days from way back then ! Your Mom would encourage me and your Dad was tireless in teaching me to ski.
We both had the blessing of great parents and I will always remember yours for their kindness.
Love, Mary Kathryn
