Genevieve Freeman Anderson was, in a word, beautiful. She was a show-stopper. As she aged, she became what one might call a 'character,' but her beauty was still shining in time spent with her three children: Alice, David and Alan, and always standing next to her husband, Glenn, no matter what his next project might be. Born to James Davis Freeman and Parthena Prichard in Marietta, Oklahoma on 6 Mar 1921, she met her husband on a troop train during World War II. The couple made their home in Tillicum, Washington after the War, where 'Jerry' worked for lots of different companies, mainly as a stenographer. When her husband retired from his Civil Service job, they ran apartments, a dental business, and turned a century-old boathouse into a thriving fishing business, where children could learn to fish and families could spend quality time together. Genevieve adored her grandchildren, and entertained them with scary Halloween drawings and walks in the woods, where they were taught to look for mushroom circles (where elves might hold their nightly meetings), and many fun family picnics. She taught Sunday School at Tillicum Baptist Church for 40 years and is now home with her Lord and Savior, no doubt helping to weed His garden.

Spring flowers are ut, mother. I remember how you took me by the hand to see the lilies of the valley. My dog is with you now. I miss him so badly. I've been so sad. Please hold him for me.

It's one of your favorite holidays. I haven't forgotten. Your family has grown. You now have four great-grandchildren. You are rocking the fifth, named after you. We shall see you and her by and by.
