May 19, 1926 Fort Smith Sebastian County Arkansas, USA
Jan. 7, 1988 Cheyenne Laramie County Wyoming, USA
Mother of two sons: Glenn (born April 16, 1946, North Tonawanda, NY), and Andrew Gustav, Jr. (born January 6, 1950, North Tonawanda, NY). Grandmothere to Doug Merrill (June 30, 1970) Andrew G. Brauer, III (March 2, 1978)
Her son, Andy and I were married in 1977. In June, 1977, I found out that I was pregnant. She was so excited when she found out that Andy and I were going to have a child. She spoiled him shamelessly (as grandmothers do), and played constantly with him. I'm glad they had such a close relationship.
Mom passed away unexpectedly due to a heart attack, which was brought on by uncontrolled diabetes, the day after her son Andy's birthday. The last words he said to her were "I love you, Mom."
