She was born a doctors daughter in small town Texas, at a time when vehicular horse-power meant you had a horse attached to the front of your vehicle.
She was a school teacher, a librarian, and she sponsored the school newspaper, touching literally thousands of students lives -- and outlived many of her students.
She is preceded by her husband, her son-in-law and all of her brothers and sisters; and she is survived by her daughter, two grandsons and a granddaughter.
Rest in peace, Gran. I love you.
