"The home organizer"
Our family had a running joke that mom was the home organizer.
She was always on, ready for the next event, adventure, or just the family meals.
Way before we even dreamed of the internet, cell phones, or google maps Mom would organize the event, vacations, and weekend trips.
She would plan the destination as well as the interesting stops along the way.
I remember she was also the trip navigator, she would always have the map (paper map not google) open and ready to guide my father on each and every turn. She would keep a written log of events along the way as well as pictures and movies.
When movies with sound came out Mom and Dad would copy the old movies to VHS and she would narrate from her notes.

I will always remember the fun times we had as a family and owe it all to MOM
THE HOME ORGANIZER

Donald.

If there was a poem, nursery rhyme or older song grandma knew all the lyrics plus some that you didn’t even know existed. Sure enough if you would google the lyrics you would find exactly what she was singing . Also, you could never find a better person to read you a book. The way she read and involved you in what she was reading would completely suck you in.

If you couldn’t draw you would learn how by the time you left from a visit. Grandma would have the weekly clippings from the news paper that teach you how to draw something with pencil, paper and more than likely a paint with water book.

The day I took my 81 year old mother to a biker bar and she almost ran way with the Boy Band..

It was 2015, Mother was 81. Would it be appropriate, or even proper to take her to High Octane Saloon in Homosassa Florida to listen to the traveling Calhoun Twins band? Without much consideration she donned a leather jacket (that she just happened to have) and was good to go.

She broke the ice as she flirted with Jack and Jerry Calhoun, telling them all about her twin grandsons and didn't stop to catch a breath until they knew her whole life story. Infatuated with this lively girl, they invited her to tour their bus and suggested she go on the road with them. She might have accepted if there had been time to prepare.

My mother wanted to be prepared for any possible situation. A leather jacket in case she wanted to go to a biker bar, a cooler full of food for a road trip including a wash cloth in a zip lock bag, to-do lists, shopping lists with coupons attached. Always prepared, just in case.

For the last few years she prepared for the end of her life to make it as easy as possible for us. Her passing was sudden, but not unexpected. she was ready, and tried her best to prepare us.

My memories will be of my mothers full life. I will remember her as independent, witty, wise, loving, intelligent, practical, considerate and frugal.

We will smile as we unearth treasures with post-it notes attached explaining the history of an item and who she would like to entrust it to. She lives on!

Mother, my heart hurts with love and missing you,

Love, Kathy

Mom would come and stay with us during goat kidding season. It was always an exciting but exhausting time. Mom made sure that the people were all fed and she was charge of holding and drying off all the babies. We had a great time.
