Carol Jean Wehrwein (1929-2017) Needlework #2


There are many things I think about when I think of my Grandma Thomas. I remember the clippings she liked to send, the banana bread recipe passed down through generations, the cross stitches she made for us over the years celebrating our marriage and the birth of our kids, the brightly colored furniture in her house when we would visit, the plants that were always around, and many other tidbits that make me smile. I love that we shared a love of history and politics, even though we were often on opposite sides of issues. I could see in myself the passion that she had for these things, so even when we disagreed I still felt close to her in just the fact that we both cared so much about it. What I hold so dear in the last few years of her life though, was the way she reacted to Owen's hugs. Owen loves to give hugs and I'll never forget the broad smiles on Grandma's face those last several visits as she embraced Owen. I could tell it was special to her, and that made it special to me.

Grandma has left quite a legacy in her children, grandchildren, and students that she has influenced over the years with her dedication and passion to education, music and current events!
