Notes

Note
This is the grandmother I remember most vividly, of course, since she lived with us until she died in 1942 when I was eighteen years old. Her physical well-being was a rather strange medical case. When she was married, she and her husband Andrew were matched well in size. He was short in stature at about 5'8" and she was somewhat shorter at approximately 5'5". After the birth of her first two children, she began to grow in stature as well as girth. As early as I remember she approached six feet in height and well over 200 pounds. She literally filled the entire doorway when she entered. In her later years she lost most of her weight and some of the height as old age began to catch up with her. But she was still an imposing woman at her death. During the last 30 years or so of her life, she suffered from diabetes, elephantiasis in the right calf, intestinal blockage, heart trouble and other assorted malaises, but her mind stayed sharp as a razor. She liked to feign a gruff exterior, but I was able to learn early on that it only hid the sweetest, gentlest nature underneath.

She was an accomplished crocheter and worked many items such as lace cuffs and collars, runners for the tables and buffet, doilies for the chairs, etc; all made with fine cotton thread that came coiled in big skeins. I used to sit and help her roll the yarn by holding the individual skeins for her. As a young child I was inveigled into brushing her long hair for her. I eventually came to enjoy it and it became as much a tranquilizer for me as for her. Whenever she was testy with us to an extreme, or began to get on someone's nerves, I headed for the hairbrush and then stood behind her chair and began to brush the sides of her head. She would always protest and tell me to go away, but she soon would be removing the pins from her hair and then would sit as long as I wanted to brush. I imagined I could feel the hostility drain from her as she regained her composure. She was a real "pussy-cat" and I loved her.
