By Granny's testimony, she was saved by the Grace of God as a young woman. Granny's wish to all who knew her was to get prepared to meet her in heaven one day. Granny always enjoyed taking care of their home, and helping Pa Wink on the farm. Granny stayed busy taking care of their kids, raising gardens, and growing her beautiful flowers. Piecing quilts was granny's favorite past time. She enjoyed stitching every stitch into her quilts and every stitch came from her heart. Our family gatherings over the years always brought enjoyment to Granny. She never wanted the fancy things in life because her family meant more to her than what money could buy. Granny will be greatly missed by her family and all those who knew and loved her. Each visit with Granny, She always got the last kiss and hug from each child and grandchild, and to you Granny from everyone who loves you, "This is our last Kiss Goodbye.
