Remembering Grandma Andrus, 1918-2011

Winifred Andrus, Mike's "adopted" grandma, and a very special lady in our family, passed away last week. We love her and are grateful to have known her. Her kind influence will be felt for generations.
Eliza got to meet her great grandma when she was a week old. 
Mike has many memories of coming up to visit his Aunt Karen and Grandma Andrus and playing with his cousins, Grandma's biological grandchildren. Grandma had several children and grandchildren who lived locally, so Mike and his sisters (whose cousins by blood were all older and lived far away) had plenty of playmates. Between the dairy farm, the rural setting, and the shelves full of books, there was always something new going on!

Her home in Marion, Utah, always has a special spirit about it. In a lot of ways, it's a little slice of heaven on earth. We will miss you, Grandma!

Aunt Karen sent Grandma's obituary from the Deseret News. Read it for a small glimpse into the life of an elect lady.
