  •  unfortunately I saved NONE of her clippings (3+ / 0-)

    as I said we did NOT get along... we hardly spoke in the last years of her life and only fought when we did speak.  I would have little in the way of specifics to add to what I already wrote...  other then I obviously inherited more from her then I realized when I was young  :)

      sorry you two didn't get along but she sure sounds very interesting nevertheless.

      Anyway, thanks for sharing what you did.

      I too would love to read it.  The specifics may not be as important as you think.  Maybe a little google or ancestry.com would retrieve some of the events.  Or maybe just the act of writing would be cathartic.

      I know it's not easy, and takes time, but consider this as warm encouragement.  It is always well to remember those who came before, they always have something to teach us (all), even when they have physically departed.
