GG was the loveliest of women. She was hard working and always believed that a job worth doing was worth doing well and completely. In an attempt to teach me this as a child, she tied me to the dishwasher with a cord just long enough to reach the cupboards after getting frustrated with my constant dilly-dallying. You see, my grandparents lived with my family for most of my life. I'm sure that I was not an easy little girl to live with, but GG loved me all the same.
GG had the best mind of anyone that I knew. She was an ace speller and I was fortunate enough to inherit that ability from her...of course that was before my mind had atrophied from lack of use and childbirth!
GG knew the value of a dollar...after all, she was a child of the depression. She was very wise and thrifty with money long before it was in vogue!
My GG would never be caught dead (no pun intended!) without her bright red lipstick. I remember on Christmas mornings, we all had to wait until GG was dressed with lipstick on before we could run out and see what Santa had brought us.
GG was quick to laugh, swift to serve and always there for her family. She loved the Savior and His gospel. She was quietly faithful and a true stalwart. She was a great example to me and all those who knew her.
GG was as classy as they come, even up to the very end. I know she is happy to be free and I know she is waiting patiently for her beloved (she was really hoping that they would go hand in hand-a true romantic!)
GG, we love you and we will miss you.
(PS-when I get my life back from MI, I will post some pictures of this wonderful lady)
