About 200 people came to help celebrate her 100th birthday last May. In the autumn family gathered for their 75th wedding anniversary.
We were losing her a little at a time, but then just after Christmas, in a few days she was gone. He was at her side. More than 200 folks came to the celebration of life at her church this past week.
She was a Master Gardener, an artist with flowers and knitting needles and women's hats and sewing machine, an election judge, a church youth advisor, a world traveler, a maker of tasty herb meatloaf. On many a Christmas Eve she sang the Hallelujah Chorus with the church choir. She was my husband's mother.
