Grandma will be greatly missed. Her cheerfulness, her smile, her love and caring, and of course... Her cooking. She was a bright and beautiful soul that was/is cherished among her family.
I remember spending the night as a kid and getting Spoiled! All the ice cream I could want while watching the Grand Ole Opry show til bedtime. And my pick of cereal in the morning from her stocked pantry. (We both liked the Frosted Wheaties)
I remember going on a trip with Grandma and Arnold up to Globe, AZ. We passed an enormous lake on the way. I don't remember who we went to visit, but I remember having fun and enjoying our journey there.
I remember me, Mom and Dad going to Grandmas house almost every weekend. I would munch on snacks and watch TV in the living room while Grandma, Arnold, Mom and Dad played the card game Canasta. Sometimes I would hang around the table and watch them play.
Grandma was the BEST cook ever. Like no joke, everything she made was a masterpiece. She would go above and beyond when preparing a meal. Didn't matter if there wasn't a special occasion, that table would be full and then some. She had a passion for cooking/baking that showed in everything she made. Anytime I had a cooking question my first step was to call Grandma and ask.
I already miss you Grandma so much. I'm so happy and thankful that you were able to see my children grow, even if it was just for a while. They love and miss you as well.
We will cherish our memories of you forever. We ALL love and miss you Grandma. We'll see you again someday.

MY MOM LIVED TO THE AGE OF 87. SHE HOPED TO REACH THE AGE OF 92, SO THAT SHE WOULD AT LEAST MATCH THE RECORD OF A RELATIVE. SHE GREW UP THE ELDEST OF 6 CHILDREN AND OUTLIVED THEM ALL. SHE HAD A HAND IN HELPING RAISE HER SIBLINGS. SHE WAS BROUGHT UP IN A CHRISTIAN HOME AND WAS SAVED AT AN EARLY AGE. SHE ATTENDED CHURCH THROUGHOUT HER LIFE.
MOM HAD A NEWSPAPER ROUTE AS A TEENAGER IN HIGH SCHOOL AND LEARNED TO CROCHET, FROM A CUSTOMER. CROCHETING BECAME A PASSION. FAMILY MEMBERS & FRIENDS WERE OFTEN BLESSED WITH HANDMADE EXPRESSIONS OF "CROCHETED LOVE".
MOM WELCOMED YOU WITH A SMILE AND HAD THE PRETTIEST LIGHT BLUE EYES, THAT EVERYONE NOTICED. SHE HAD MANY TALENTS. SHE ALWAYS KEPT A BEAUTIFUL HOME WHICH SHOWED OFF HER CREATIVE SIDE. SHE HAD VARIOUS HOBBIES AND ENJOYED CRAFTING. SHE HAD A POSITIVE "CAN DO" ATTITUDE WHICH MADE IT POSSIBLE TO FIGURE OUT, MOST ANYTHING.
MOM LIKED TO COOK AND BAKE, AND DID SO FROM SCRATCH. SHE COOKED LIKE SHE WAS PREPARING ENOUGH FOOD FOR AN ARMY BUT NOBODY EVER COMPLAINED. IT BROUGHT HER PLEASURE TO SEND YOU HOME WITH SOMETHING FOR LATER.
MOM'S FAVORITE BREED OF DOG WAS THE "BOSTON TERRIER". EACH OF THE ONES SHE OWNED, SHE LOVED DEARLY. THEY WERE ALL SPOILED, BUT WELL DISCIPLINED AND BROUGHT HER TREMENDOUS JOY AND COMFORT.
IT IS WITH DEEP SADNESS THAT MY MOM HAS PASSED, BUT SHE IS OUT OF PAIN AND TOOK A JOURNEY LIKE NO OTHER. SHE WILL BE MISSED AND WE KNOW WE WILL SEE HER AGAIN, IN HEAVEN SOMEDAY.
