The toast of Helena
My grandma passed away Sunday night. It wasn’t entirely unexpected but still sad. She was a feisty, sweet, opinionated lady who accomplished a lot in her 90 years here. For one thing, she graduated from college in the 30’s which is pretty amazing and unusual. She graduated with a degree in home economics and was a member of Alpha Chi Omega sorority. She got married and raised 4 children and continued to live in Seattle until she died. She was always the type of person to remember birthdays and continued to give her grown kids $25 Target gift cards for Christmas. 🙂 She could go on for hours and hours (and often did) about her times in Helena, Montana and from her stories…it sounds like life was just as drama filled then as it is now!
My mom just sent me some old pictures of her and wasn’t she glamourous? Look at the gloves and the hat and the car. Her husband is in the second picture. It just goes to show that even grandmas were once chic and fabulous 20-somethings.
