I am blessed to get to call Janice my "Momma"and got to do a lot of growing in that little house on Loula Street. As did my children, with some of our best memories. So Grandma Gail was present in their lives and although she was quiet, hugs were abundant. I discovered a love for old movies, although the westerns were a little harder, she could tell you so many facts about the movie or actors. And if you EVER forgot someone's birthday or anniversary, she was the calendar keeper. The best game for all of us was to get her to smile, even better to get her laughing, because she had a beautiful smile!

I know that she is at peace from ALS and it is us that are left behind that are hurting. We love you Grandma Gail and miss you so very much.

Jess, Justin, Jacob and Jaida

Grandma Ingalls was a kind and quiet woman. She spoke volumes in her crafts tho. She’s part of my favorite story to tell. How we came up with the name “Zora”. The first time grandma met Avery, she mentioned how none of her granddaughters and now great granddaughter are named after her mother. I asked her what her mother’s name was (thinking she would say Gertrude, Beatrice, Esther) and she replied “Zora”. I immediately told James IF we had another girl, her name would be Zora. The look on grandma’s face when we announced the gender and name of our second child is a memory I will cherish forever. ❤️

Rest In Peace Grandma
