Barb and family....much love and healing prayers for u. Memories will keep her and your Mom always in your heart. Wonderful women to honor!! Hugs Jan Buso
I celebrate the life of my dear Aunt "Georgie". I will remember her smiling laughing personality, her love of family,her wicked card playing, her joy in being with her 3 sisters, her yummy cooking, her joy in being with my 1980 born daughter Bethany whom she continually "spoiled" with gifts and love!! Many former college students will remeber her many years in KSU Financial Aid office and how she REALLY CARED AND WORK FOR STUDENTS so that HUNDREDS received all the money they didn't even realize was available to help them finish college ;including myself ,and my husband in the 1970's and our daughter in 1999! That her chidren suffered through the dreaded "long goodbye of Alzheimers disease " with caring (they saw she was cared for in her home) and with cheerful bravery is a testiment to not only their courage but a reflection on her example in their lives! I rejoice that she was a true beleiver tand is now with Jesus and her loved ones!! I pray that she is one of my angels and I look forward to knowing her again in Heaven!!!

1973 to 1976. She was a wonderful lady and well respected by all. My deepest condolensces to the Grimm family. Remember the wonderful times you shared. Cheryl Russo
