Our mother and grandmother was a wonderful wife, a marvelous mother and a gentle grandmother. She always had time for us - time to listen to our troubles, our joys, and our sorrows. She was one of those rare people - a GOOD listener, and not only for her family, but for anyone who needed an understanding ear.
She was always cheerful, with a warm welcoming smile for everyone. She never complained or seemed depressed. She loved the outdoors and even in her later years she had a large garden with vegetables and many beautiful flower beds. "When, as she grew older, we would tell her, "Don't try to have so much company, Thee just isn't able," she would reply, "Don't worry. God will always give us the strength to do the things He wants us to do."
Although we will miss her every day, we are so glad for her that she has gone to be forever with the Savior she loved so much. She has left us all the greatest heritage anyone can ever leave - the example of having truly LIVED a Christian life.
