Home made head stone with the name "MAMMY" enscribed.
This was made by my grandfather, Frank Pezdirc (Pazdric) and my Father, Frank Pazdric Jr. The story told to me by my Father goes that everyone called my Greatgrandmother, Mommy. She ran a boarding house in Carolina for the miners. I suspect because she took good care of her boarders by fixing their meals, washing their clothes, keeping their rooms clean not to mention all the other countless tasks she did around the house, they all affectionally called her Mommy. When she passed away and the head stone was being made it was decided to put Mommy on the stone instead of her name. When it came time to put on the name a discussion on how to spell the name came about. My Grandfather, an immigrant from Yugoslavia spelled a lot of things as they sounded and after words back and forth with my Father, my Grandfather's spelling won out. So goes the name "MAMMY".
