To me, Grandma was always working. She sewed for the public as long as I can remember. She and grandpa used to run the old Shamrock Gas Station in Big Spring, Texas. I remember her sewing machine was set up right at the window so she could stop sewing and go out and fill up a customer's car with gas, wash their windows and whatever else they needed. She was tough!
Here is a picture of her when she was about 16. I just recently received this photo from my Mom. I could not believe that it was grandma! Look how pretty she is. Look how she is standing kinda sexy.
So many years in between the times that each of these photos were taken. So many stories! She is a lovely lady on the inside and out. Love You Grandma!
