My beautiful, talented mother-in-law passed away peacefully Saturday morning; her son, daughter, and faithful caregivers were by her side. Angie would have been 97 in July. She was the second oldest of eight sisters (one arrived after the photo below). Now only the two youngest remain.

Isn't that a classic photo? Angie is seated second from the right.
She majored in art at the University of Kansas (go Jayhawks!) and got a job during WWII as a draftsperson at North American Aviation where she met her husband. Once the war was over, she never plied her art professionally, instead putting her talents to use behind the home sewing machine, with a needle in hand, knitting sweaters, or wielding a paintbrush.
She did impeccable needlepoint, crewel embroidery, and cross-stitch work.

Thanks again to all of my loyal readers for lifting Angie and the rest of our family in prayer during these last difficult days.
