Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • This was my great-grandmother. I don't remember much about her but she was a nice lady. She was known as Granny Stewart to me. She reminded me of my own grandma, her daughter June. They both ended up in the same manor, albeit decades apart. Most of her children have passed on now. Jim is still alive. I think Dick is, too. - Posted by: TYSON GEISLER (Great-Grandson) on: Jan 02, 2023
