I will remember “Grannie” fondly as a spirited, fun-loving, person who had granddaughters and great-granddaughters who adored her and loved spending time with her because of her youthful energy and worldly advice.
I have memories of laughing with her while having a nice soda myself! She Iived life to the fullest and will be missed. My prayers are with her family at this time.
