April 4, 1909

(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 fo
r treasures. We found some good things there sometimes.

Happy Birthday Grandma. I love you!!!

(Taken 2 months before she passed, August 1994)

As you know, I lost my grandmother recently. I lived with my grandmother for two years from when I was 17-19. I have some of my greatest memories of her during that time. We never would have had that if we hadn't lived together and none of her other grandchildren have that. One of the funniest memories I have was from a morning where I was getting ready for school (it was 1987, mind you) and I had my radio blasting and Poison's "Talk Dirty to Me" was on and she came in dancing! I still laugh when I think of that.
