I know she is missed by everyone who met her, though she was more than ready to move on to the next phase. She has been wanting to join Grandpa since he passed over 2 years ago, I think her spirit had started to leave at that point, but it just took her body another couple years to catch up…
I have so many fond memories of her throughout my life. She was the sweetest, most generous and loving person. She was constantly telling us grandkids how special and loved we were and she showed it by always making us embroidered pillows, blankets, and her famous homemade popsicles! The majority of family birthdays and dinners revolved around her homemade cakes and food - pickled tomatoes and onions, macaroni and tomatoes, and my favorite - sticky fries!
So many of her sayings will live in infamy in the memories of many…
“Sing at the table, cry before night”
“If you’re not bread and butter hungry, then you’re not hungry”
Boldly owning up to her craziness, and upon meeting my friends “Did Chelsea tell you about her crazy grandma?”
Always professing “I’m ______ years old and I’m not gonna change now!”
Yard sales on the front lawn; Harvey Girls; winning Queen for a Day; being the Colton Canary - not just a wait-ur-uss…..
I know the love and kindness she bestowed upon everyone she met is still felt by us all….
Love you and miss you Grandma and Grandpa!
