Remembering My Grandma
This is a photo of Grandma Ida and her husband William on their wedding day in June 1915.
Grandma Ida was a wonderful gardener and cook, the memories of her fried chicken and blueberry pie make my mouth water! Grandma's devotion to her faith, her family and her friends set an example for all of us. She was my role model - a strong woman who overcame all obstacles and hardships including breast cancer, the loss of an infant son, and being widowed at a young age with a farm to run and four sons to raise. She lived her life with courage, determination, and humor.
Of hardy German stock, Grandma Ida lived to be 97 years old! She is our guardian angel now, watching over all of us from Heaven, and I want her to know that I love her dearly and will miss her always... until we meet again!
