Mary Margaret Knelanger "Granny" was the only daughter of Herman Edelhardt Knelanger and Alwilda Burke Thomas. In 1943, she married James Horne and together they had four children. In the mid 1950's the family moved from Indiana to California.

Mary always spoke her mind and told it as it was; no glossing over the truth.

The inscription on her marker is one that she and her husband had always joked about, no matter which would depart this world before the other. The companion marker will read "That's what she thinks" upon his death.

She was preceded in death by all of her siblings.
