A Tribute To

Beatrice E. Wagner

When we think about Grnany we instantly think of her very kind and caring nature. Granny was humble; she didn’t want to talk about herself, but wanted to know everything that was going on in the lives of those she cared about. She was also tough. There were days when I’m sure that Granny didn’t feel well, but you didn’t hear her complain. When Granny was able, she enjoyed working outside gardening, mowing and taking care of flowers. She also enjoyed crocheting and watching the scenery and wildlife out her big picture window.

More than anything, Granny loved her family and it was spending time with her husband, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren that made Granny happiest. She was a devoted wife to Pap for more than 64 years. She and Pap set a wonderful example of love and dedication for our family; even after so many years it was easy to see the true love they had for each other. If you can believe it, Granny even used to ride motorcycles with Pap! Granny was a loving mother to her two children, Shannon and Louise. She and Louise enjoyed spending many hours together in the kitchen over the years, cooking, canning, making jellies and jams and other goodies for their families. A visit from her grandchildren would make Granny’s day, as her face lit up when they walked in the door. When her grandchildren were little, she liked to read them books and play games with them. She kept all of their things in a special “mailbox” so it was always ready when they stopped by.

She especially liked to have her grandkids sit on her lap; after all there is no place like a grandmother’s lap. As her grandkids became adults, she was so proud of them, even collecting their business cards so she could show them to her friends and tell them about their successes. Granny also enjoyed visits from neighbors and friends. In fact, she enjoyed visits from friends and family so much that she wrote down when folks stopped by in her calendar along with the weather each day. Granny always wanted to “feed” everyone who stopped by, whether it be a dish of ice cream or a meal, she wanted to make sure that we were taken care of.

She especially enjoyed baking and sharing these goodies; her pies and cakes were a real treat, just ask Pap! We will always remember hearing Granny tell us to “come back” as we were leaving her house. We’ll miss hearing that so very much, as we would all love just one more visit with Granny.

We love you, Granny, and thank you for all your unconditional love to all of us over the years.
