Today we lay to rest our beloved Gran- my husband's Grandmother. She passed away last Sunday evening. Until recently she lived at home-but time took it's toll and she moved into respite care after a heart attack some weeks back.
She was a Great-grandmother of 12 and great-great grandmother of 7...meeting out two youngest grandchildren in the week prior to passing.
Gran taught me a lot-about relationships and family; about how to enjoy and appreciate each day. One of 10 siblings, she lived through the Great Depression and knew how to live within her means.
Dancing the night away in her younger years, she also loved sport ( being VERY competitive in nature), cooking and cards.
Cognitive until the end, I adored those opportunities I had to chat with her-discussing the differences and similarities between our two generations.
