Alma Lois Buckley
Birth: Feb. 3, 1898
Death: Dec. 31, 1990

THIS IS MY GRANNY,MY DADDY'S MOTHER.SHE WAS A TELL IT LIKE IT IS LADY,SHE WAS BORN WITH A CLUB FOOT AND HAD TO WEAR BLACK HIGH TOP CONVERSE TENNIS SHOES ALL HER LIFE AND SHE ALWAYS SWORE THAT IT WAS BECAUSE MY GREAT GRANDMOTHER WAS MAKING A DOLL FOR HER AND NEVER FINISHED ONE FOOT ON THE DOLL!
SHE WAS VERY SUPERSTIOUS ABOUT THINGS,BUT SHE ALSO WENT TO CHURCH EVERY SUNDAY. SHE NEVER DROVE A CAR,NEVER WORE SHOES LIKE OTHER WOMEN AND NEVER WORE A BRA HER ENTIRE LIFE,SHE NEVER CUT HER HAIR AND NEVER WORE A PAIR OF TROUSERS.AS SHE CALLED THEM.
SHE NEVER REMARRIED AFTER MY GRANDFATHER PASSED AWAY!
SHE DID NOT LIKE TELEVISION AND SHE WOULD ACTUALY ON PURPOSE STAND IN FRONT OF IT SO NO ONE ELSE COULD WATCH IT,IF SHE WAS FEELING LIKE PICKING ON SOMEONE.
SHE HOARDED SUGAR LIKE IT WAS GOLD.
I USE TO TAKE HER TO THE GROCERY STORE AND WHEN I LEFT SHE ALWAYS GAVE ME A 5 POUND BAG OF SUGAR.
I ONCE ASKED HER WHY SHE WOULD HAVE ABOUT FIFTY BAGS OF SUGAR AND SHE SAID,YOU CAN NEVER HAVE ENOUGH SUGAR! I GUESS IT WAS BECAUSE THEY RATIONED SUGAR WHEN THE WAR WAS GOING ON.
SHE LOVED HER CHILDREN AND GRAND CHILDREN VERY MUCH,BUT SHE DID NOT PUT UP WITH ANY NONSCENCE FROM HER KIDS OR GRAN KIDS,ALTHOUGH SHE NEVER SPANKED HER GRAND CHILDREN.
I LOVED HER VERY MUCH,SHE WAS A UNIQUE LADY.
REST IN HEAVENLY PEACE GRANNY,I LOVE YOU AND YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN.



THANKS FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART TO AN AWESOME EARTH ANGEL,Always in my heart(Melissa) for sponsoring my Grandparents.
