(circa 1943) April 4, 1909, Anna Emily Elizabeth (Lange) Rankin was born. She is my paternal Grandmother. She would have been 100 years old today, April 4, 2009. However, she passed away on October 24, 1994.
I was fortunate enough to spend a great deal of time with her throughout my life. In fact, my Sis and I even lived with her and Grandpa for about six months, back in 1969. We baked, we shopped, we fished, we camped, and we played lots of games. One of the funniest things we did was when we would go tromping through the dump searching for treasures. We found some good things there sometimes.
Happy Birthday Grandma. I love you!!!
