Grandma Shirley

By Kelly

Shirley Moffat (Hamilton) was born in 1908. She passed away last year and we held her funeral on her 102nd birthday. It seems strange but it certainly made the day more of a celebration, as it should be.  Shirley was a fantastic grandmother and great grandmother, warm and kind. She witnessed a myriad of changes in her long life. Since her passing I find myself drawn to stories of women in the early 1900s. One of those was Half Broke Horses, by Jeannette Walls. It was a good book with a strong female character. It makes me think of Grandma. We miss her but have many great memories.
