Mary Grace McDonald Fisher
April 20, 1914-July 6, 2011
My Mom passed on July 6 after 97 wonderful years of life,  peacefully with me by her side.  My Mom taught me to sew, cut patterns, know great material from not so great, how to craft, stencil, etch glass, make crepe paper flowers, turn a pillow case into a sundress or curtains and a trillion other crafty things.  If it was a craft my Mom tried it or did it.  Mom crocheted all her life and the wonderful full table cloths, full and twin bed covers and yards and yards and yards of edging ( in my sewing stash) are the ultimate handmade items.  All these things will always remind me that no matter how hard Mom tried I still cannot crochet, knit I can do, crochet can't do.  But then no matter how much she tried to knit she never could.  We spent many hours, her with her hook and me with my knitting needles.  She is now with Dad and I know happy to be in heaven as she was a Godly woman.  Thanks Mom for the love and care and being the best Mom ever.

 I am off to Spokane, Washington tomorrow, July 13 to attend the Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America national triennial gathering and vacation w/hubby.  I am so excited to be spending time with my Lutheran sisters from across the globe and my wonderful husband.  Fun,Fun.....www.womenoftheelca.org
