Regarding My Grandma, My role Model
My Mama Says….
Well…..it didnt take long before my mother, daughter of my grandma sent this to me regarding the facts…Looks like I need to research my family history a little more.
Wow, well since this is my mama the story is about, I am not only overwhelmed,
but choked up in reading this beautiful memoir. Yes, she was a role model to
look up to. And all of Ethel’s grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and
nephews, besides her four children can verify this. I have only one correction
to make, and it is an interesting one. My mama was born and raised in a little
island off the coast of Louisiana, called Burrwood. Her family lived off of the
land, and rowed a boat to pick up groceries and supplies. She was educated in a
one room classroom all the way to the 12th grade. She was a Dancing Queen at 18
in a contest. She played baseball just like all the boys on the island, and
learned at an early age to appreciate reading. She could read a book a day. When
Ethel turned 19, her family moved to New Orleans and this is where she met
David, her husband, who swept her off her feet. Thank you Kelley, I just had to add this part of her life into your story. You have been blessed to remember Grandma Miller.
