Sad Family News…

My husband’s wonderful grandmother, Ola Louise {Davidson} Weeks, passed away in Kansas yesterday. She was so loved and will be greatly missed by everyone who knew her.

We’ll be heading up for the funeral this weekend, so I might be a little scarce on here for the next few days.

Louise was the matriarch of her family at 96 years old and was immensely helpful when I started on my genealogical journey 12 years ago.  She was full of so many wonderful family stories.

The last time we saw her was this past May and I was lucky enough to have interviewed her about her amazing birth story, which I posted earlier this month.  I will add it again here today for those of you who didn’t get a chance to watch it.  It’s remarkable to think that she lived such a  beautiful, long life after such a precarious beginning.

It’s hard to believe that she’s gone.:(
