I had the pleasure of knowing this great women for 41 years. This strong, god fearing, family loving women was my grandmother. Us kids spent many Sundays at Grandmas after church. It was always pot roast, carrots, potatoes and gravy. Christmas Eve was also spent at grandmas. Grandma made sure church camp was always available for us in the summer. So many memories, all of which are all good. I loved this woman with everything, as she did her family. Grandma you will be missed so very much by more than just me.
