Anna Viola Parkison with oldest daughter, Zilpha
My grandmother made everything fun. She would tease us, play with us and keep us all in line. She was the best grandmother any girl could hope for. She taught me how to crochet, cook and tie a string around a horsefly and make it a "pet". I still remember her stories she told about my older cousins. We would beg and beg for her to tell a "Joanie" story. They were the best. SHe taught my first Sunday School class and was a wonderful Bible teacher. She loved kids, flowers, and cooking. She made the best hamburgers ever!
Today I remember her and miss her. I only hope I can be as good a grandma as she was to me. Happy Birthday, Grandma! I love you!!!!
