Death: Jul. 17, 1970
Okanogan County
Washington, USA

When Grandma Lorz died in July 1970, she had 54 grandchildren, and 21 great grandchildren. She was a wonderful lady who stood 6 feet tall without shoes. My Dad, Kenneth, said when she got a sucker out of the apple trees and lined the kids up for discipline he figured out if he stood closest to her that by the time she got to him the oomph had gone out of her swing. He also told of how he and one of his brothers were shooting at a coyote on the hill back of the house moving it back and forth, and Grandma came out, took the rifle away from one of them and put the coyote out of its misery with one shot, saying "Quit playing with the poor thing."

Grandma didn't have much problem with mice around her house as she put out milk and leftovers for a skunk that had set up housekeeping under the building near the house where they kept the tractor and equipment. The skunk would come up to the breezeway and stamp its feet while Grandma filled its bowl with bread and milk, and anything else she found she thought it would like to eat. It would even bring it kits up with it as they got older.
