The fondest memory that I have of my Granny was the day she met her great-great granddaughter. My mom and I decided to fly to New Jersey to surprise her after I had my daughter, Harper, as we knew that she would not be able to travel to Minnesota to come meet her. When we got to Granny's, my Aunt Julie went in first by herself so she could distract Granny. Granny happened to be sitting in the kitchen balancing her check book so it was easy for us to sneak in behind my aunt unnoticed. My aunt told Granny that she had a surprise for her. It just so happened that my aunt had brought a new toilet seat with her that day as the current one was loose and wouldn't stay in place. I remember Granny thinking that the surprise was the toilet seat until she finally looked up from her check book and saw us standing in her kitchen doorway. Granny's eyes got big and her mouth dropped wide open. She was speechless. She sat in her recliner and rocked Harper as they stared at each other. Granny had biggest smile on her face. The look of pure joy, love, and pride on her face in that moment will be one I will always cherish and never forget.

As Harper grew, I would send photos to Granny so she could watch her grow from a distance. She couldn't wait to see new pictures or videos of Harper. It would be the first thing she asked when my aunt or Nanny would go visit.

Granny was the strongest and smartest person I have ever known and always had a positive attitude. She loved her sports, playing scrabble, and Wheel of Fortune. She always had the puzzle solved before the contestants did. She enjoyed time with her family and was always there for you. I find peace in knowing that she is now reunited with the love of her life and they are both watching over us. We love and will miss you very much but know you are with us in spirit.

All of our love,
Tyler, Bailey and Harper

Dear Kathy, Pete,Julie and Tina and all of your family,

We are so sad to hear of Aunt Jean’s passing. It is especially difficult at this time when we can’t gather with you but know we are with you in our hearts and minds.

Aunt Jean was smart, kind, and fun. She was a great source of family and friendship to my Mom and Dad, Alton and Mary Jane. We pray she is at peace and I can just see the four of them at a great “Wading Pines” campfire!

We will keep her and your family in our hearts and prayers,

❤️Janie & Jimmy Baranyay

Whether it was cards, scrabble, jeopardy or bowling, more than likely Granny was going to whoop you at it. She wasn’t your average grandmother, she stayed up all night watching football or baseball games so you didn’t call before 10:00 am because she never got up early. Gran and I had the same sense of humor and sadly would make fun of the same things in life. If you know me, you know nothing came before my granny. We would crack up until our eyes teared and we could no longer breathe. That love of giving thing I have may have also come from her, considering she gave me a gift on my sisters birthday until I was in high school. I cherish all of the time I had with her from the weekends camping as kids until the dinners together as adults. My gran was everything to me and I cherished every moment we spent together whether they were happy or sad. She always told me I was bossy but really I think I just knew her best. She remembered everything for me so now I have no idea who is going to remind me or remember the things that happened years ago that she remembered for me. But seriously as a granddaughter I was so blessed to have such a wonderful grandmother and role model my entire life. Now my Poppy, the person who adored her most gets her back. All my love Gran.......

My Granny was the queen of Scrabble, I think she knew every word in the dictionary. She liked playing cards and watching game shows, she was so smart. She was a bit competitive, a loyal Mets and Cowboys fan. Her favorite color was pink. She had a cookie drawer that was always stocked and there was always ice cream in her freezer, she loved her sweets. We spent our summers growing up camping with her and Poppy, they took us everywhere and loved us endlessly. She was always there, every important moment in my life, my fondest memories...she was there. She was sharp, funny, classy and beautiful. I loved her beyond measure and will carry her in my heart forever.
