Losing a family member never gets any easier and it seems it's happening all too frequently these days. On on July 1, 2017, my grandma, Goldie Mae Farris, passed. And, while we are all heartbroken and sad to see her go, we are happy she is back with her son, Steve, and the love of her life, my Grandpa John (who passed away in 1997). She was going to be 90 later this year.
Grandma wasn't always the most affectionate women, but I knew she was proud of me, particularly for making my way back to the motherland, Texas. While she had been in California for many years, she was a Texan at heart.
Grandma was very interested in genealogy and I am very grateful for all the research she did and shared about our family history. It's because of her that I have documentation proving I'm a descendant of Irish royalty. Thanks Grandma!
While there isn't going to be a service, there has been a memorial page made in her honor on the Chapel of Light website where everyone can share memories and photos and read the lovely obituary written about her life.
We'll miss you Grandma!
