Here’s to you, Grandma.

On Monday, Brian’s Grandma left us for the great TV-watchin’ couch in the sky.

She was an amazing woman, a true matriarch. We’ll miss her dearly.

Today, we’ll be saying our last goodbyes to her.

Here’s to you, Grandma.

Grandma Fane on her 90th birthday with a beer in hand!

Grandma - A Lion of a Lady
by Krysten Fane

A pot spoon, a loud TV, a tom cat, or TC.

A doll house, a rotary phone, family photos abound.

A stack of newspapers, a TV guide, a cigarette

Curtains closed till noon.

A set of dice, a strong mind, a witty comment soon.

A sense of humor, a sense of style, a set of clip on earrings,

A next door neighbor, a grocery list, a love of back-seat-only driving.

A family dinner on Sunday, a John Collins, an RC soda,

DQ pints, fried chicken and her secret potato salad.

Nothing ever wasted, nothing taken for granted.

Loyal, kind and caring,

Stubborn, strict and fair,

Your presence felt forever.

Edna Fane was here.


  1. Cute picture! I think one of my great aunts had that same sweater. Did she have matching rose-colored polyester pants to go with it? SO CUTE! And great poem!

  2. Yes! I am pretty sure she did! And thanks about the poem. I thought Krysten did a good job. :)
