Grandma Jessie

I inherited her name, her wedding ring and a hundred stories. But my only memories of Great Grandma Jessie are nursing home visits and marigolds on a coffin.

People always want to know what famous historical figure you would like to raise from the depths of the past and have to dinner. Me, I’d just like a solid Grandma Jessie memory of my own to add some extra shine to my inheritance.

    Gorgeous picture. I love your connection to her. ❤

  2. I was named for my great-grandma Olive Jane (she insisted everyone call her Janie). I’m told she was a no-bullshit-taken thundercloud of a woman, and I so wish I’d gotten to meet her. I love this picture, and your connection. ❤
