Our Pop's mom, our Grandmom, passed away this past Sunday. She was almost 90 and had been in a nursing home for the past number of years. The photo above was from her 50th Wedding Anniversary in the late 1980's.
Since we were her only grand kids from our Mom and Pop we were called her grandkitties. This would make her smile! Our oldest kitties Chica and Yoko know Grandmom well...they used to sneak in her room when she visited us and pull all the tissues out of her tissue box and shred them. She couldn't figure out how that happened and never suspected us cats! Heehee
Lou Ellen was born in Texas and lived there her whole life, raising three boys. She was a tough spunky lady, honest, outspoken and with a hearty laugh! She always dressed beautifully, everything color coordinated. In later years, she and Grandpop got to travel a lot overseas and all over. Mom and Pop took them lots of places when they came to visit us.
Grandmom volunteered at the local hospital in Texas with Grandpop. Grandpop Sam passed first about ten years ago.
We will miss her and hope that she is with Grandpop at the Bridge, having fun with all the older folks - her family and friends who have already gone.
