  1. Kaitlyn Mease says:

    My grandma was beautiful, strong, caring, and the most hardworking person I have ever known. Since as long as I remember she has always taken care of me and tried her best in giving me a happy and meaningful life.

    I have many memories with her as a kid, and she is the best grandma I could ever ask for. She loved Christmas and invited me over every year to decorate the house and bake cookies and make pierogis or homemade egg noodles, which were carried down in her family for years. In the summer, she would take me and my brother mini-golfing, bowling, or on mini trips to fairgrounds, Lake Erie, Pitsburg, and other places in Ohio that I’ve never been to. Not being able to travel much, I am very grateful for her and my grandpa for giving these opportunities to me. These were truly fun times.

    She taught me how to do many things such as baking, cooking, sewing, painting, and gardening. She truly brightened my childhood and I will always cherish the memories I have with her and my grandpa.

    I am very devasted with her passing away, but I will try my best to learn from her and become an amazing person like she was. She always tried to teach me what is right and how to be a good person, so I will take these things I learned from her and try to move on and live a happy life like she would have wanted me to.

    Thank you for everything MeeMaw.
