On July 10th my grandma, Marjean, passed away suddenly a day before her 80th birthday. I fondly referred to her as “farm grandma” as she lived on a farm in Iowa and me and my brother Collin loved to visit each year. It was a boys' dream as we got to play with tractors, pigs, cows and play golf all in one trip.
Marjean was a wonderful woman who loved to play games and make cookies, in other words she was the best grandma you could ask for. She lived a great life and had the opportunity to spend quality time with all of her children AND grandchildren in the last year, including our great trip to Iowa.
She and I were quite close and talked frequently so her sudden passing from surgery complications came as a big surprise. At the same time the family was at peace with her passing as she lived a great life and touched many people with her flair for fashion and her willingness to help anyone. She was the definition of a Mom and Grandma and instilled a lot of great lessons in her children and grandchildren. She will be greatly missed and never forgotten.
Below are a few moments from the past 10 years...
