My Granny.

She always refused our offers of a piece of gum because she didn't think chewing gum was ladylike. Told us never to call her "Ma'am" because that was short for "Madam" and she didn't run a w----house! I never saw her drink anything but coffee & Diet Shastas. Instead of nametags on Christmas gifts, she used numbers. She attached the number to the package & kept a secret list as to what number went to whom. She was famous for her meatballs as well as oyster stew with cheese toast on Christmas morning. The first thing she said when she was told that she was going to be a great-grandmother was "I don't have to share this one with Bob." Bob was our grandfather and he made no secret about being a proud Papa! The last understandable words she uttered were in regards to her great-granddaughter.

Granny retired from Medical Center Hospital (now East Texas Medical Center) in 1983 where she was a certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA). She was also a member and former president of Soroptimist Club International, a womens service organization.

She is survived by her daughter, Brenda Thompson Oswald; her granddaughters, Ann Oswald and Heather Oswald; and her great-granddaughter, Taylor Armstrong. Since her death, she has gained a great-grandson, Clay Vrooman; and two additional great-granddaughters, Caroline and Mary Margaret Roberts.

She was preceeded in death by her parents, Charles N. (December 1881 - 23 June 1937) and Florence Mariner Egge; her husband, Robert Lee Thompson; and her son, Tosten Lee Thompson.

A special thank you to Debala for sponsoring Granny's page. Your kindness is very touching.
