memories of Grandma Wanda

My Grandma Wanda passed away on the 17th of May.  Here is a picture journal of her life...
Grandma as a young girl

She was quite the bowler, who knew?!

Grandma was a remarkable woman, with the will of an ox!  We've always blamed our stubbornness and strong will on her, but I will always be grateful for what she taught me about sticking up for what I feel passionately about and always fighting for what I believe in.

Love you Grandma...


  1. I'm so glad you posted. I've wanted to but haven't quite figured out what I want to say. The pictures turned out soooo nice-I'm going to download some for myself.

  2. What a sweet remembrance of your Grandma. It's fun to see old pictures of where you came from.
