My Grandmother was a special lady. I remember spending time with her as a young girl on the farm. She was a Christian lady with those that knew her, respected her. She spent many years in nursing home in Siloam Spring and then after the passing of her two other daughters, my mom moved her to Grove. She had developed dementia but always had a smile and a wave for all. I will miss her dearly. Her first granddaughter.

I visit with Doris when she lived next door to my cousin on Cordes in Siloam. Mary and I want to send our condolences to the whole family.
