April 25, 2011: Mom's father Donald Austin Armstrong

Update on Grandma Frannie:
She is recently home (for the 2nd time) from the nursing home and is getting physical therapy. Frannie was starting to get on her feet, and recuperating from her accident. She was so happy to be be able to live at home and have her dad with her again.

Frannie took very good care of him for the past 7 years, after her Mother passed away. She took her responsibility of looking after Grandpa very seriously. Before he got the pacemaker, his heart would stop and he passed out. Several times he got terrible injuries. Every time she nursed him until he was strong again. She made sure he got good medical care and didn't let any thing go unattended. She fought with the Ins. Co. to get him a pacemaker.

He was doing quite good, after he got the pacemaker. He used to go to do his strength training 3 times a week and a balance class 1 time a week. Frannie got him a gym membership 2 years ago and she drove him faithfully, until her accident, then we took him. On the days he didn't go to his gym, he walked outside and used his cross-country and bike at home. He was doing very good. His mind was very sharp and he was happy that he could do nearly everything for himself.

Recently Grandpa had a bad fall and he passed away a few hours later. Frannie always put Grandpa before herself. Now she is not eating, having trouble sleeping and cries easily. She blames herself, as she thinks she should have prevented the fall. My dad (her son) says she is not to blame and she could never have prevented the fall. Grandpa was very strong and doing well, until the fall. It was unexpected, we weren't prepared. We expected that he would have many good years left. We lost our Grandpa, I can't believe he is gone.

Grandma Frannie is devastated and still in shock. We need her help with his memorial, so it's up but not complete yet. The world has lost a beautiful soul.

Your kind flowers and messages, have truly touched our hearts and you are a really big comfort to our family.

We will try to visit your loved ones as often as we can.

Thank you for your prayers. GOD BLESS YOU. Gracie and our family.

Joyce Zeiters #76339062
Hi Family First:
RE: Joyce Ann Zeiters Memorial #76339062
Joyce was my sister-in-law. She was born in San Diego, CA. and died in McKinleyville, CA. She died of cancer. She was very passionate about raising money for cancer by quilting. Here is a link to some information about her:
Joyce Zeiters and this Quilt
“Joyce Zeiters was honored at the 2007 Relay For Life as a three time cancer survivor. She stated her reasons to Relay which included her hope for her daughter: “I don’t ever want her to hear the words that she has cancer. I want cures or Vaccines to be found…”
She was proud her Relay team had been honored
as Rookie Team of the Year and was in the top 15 fundraising teams every year since. We were proud to work with Joyce for the Quilt
Guild and for Relay. She was again diagnosed
with cancer and died in September 2010, and we
miss her. Joyce selected the bright, cheerful fabric specifically to make this Relay fundraiser quilt.

Joyce and her friend Chris selected the pattern
Chickens on the Courthouse Steps from Fat
Quarter Quilting, Fast, Fun, Done by Sue Penn.
Joyce began making blocks for the quilt but was
unable to continue. Her friends made this quilt
their priority and completed the piecing and
quilting all in one week. Joyce was able to
approve the quilt and we are proud to share
“Joyce’s Ever Blooming Friendship Garden Quilt”
for a Relay fundraiser.”

The quilt that was made was beautiful and no matter how she felt and how sick she was she refused to believe she would succumb to cancer. She always tried to be positive and her quilting gave her an excellent outlet to take her mind off her disease. She loved her family and her pets and she died at home surrounding by her husband, who cared for her throughout her illness and her dogs.

I hope you can print the picture of the quilt for her memorial, I think it would make her very happy and it would be a fitting tribute to a very dedicated quilter. Thanks.

George Aubrey Reed
George did research on the Hills surname and was preparing an extensive report. I know he corresponded with my Mother Martha (Hills) Jordan because I have his letter. It would be nice to find the report that George was preparing. Jeremy Hills Jordan

Edits on Torkse Ft Snelling
I just sent some new edits for my Great Aunt Thelma Torske. I noticed that I sent relationship connecting her to her parents but it has not been edited. I think it has been over a month. Can you check? I may be wrong but I know it is not done yet.
Thanks so much!

RE: Re:John Thorson/Ft. Snelling
Thank you so much! Some of the older stones tend to fade over time and some can be a real challenge. Thanks again and you have a great week too.

Mulligan CSC sisters
I sent you two messages on July 31, 2015 about the memorials you have created for seven CSC sisters, all with the surname Mulligan, associating them with Cedar Grove Cemetery, Notre Dame, IN, instead of where they are actually buried. Six of the CSC sisters are buried in the CSC sisters' own cemetery at Notre Dame, IN, called Our Lady of Peace Cemetery, and the seventh CSC sister is buried in Santa Clara Cemetery, Oxnard, Ventura County, CA. They all already have Find A Grave memorials associated with their correct cemeteries. I have offered, and believe the others who have created the memorials associated with the correct cemeteries, will work with you on combining the duplicate memorials, leaving you as the manager of the remaining corrected memorials. Please refer to the messages sent July 31 for further information.

The stone for John is faded really bad. I got the photo as best I could for you. If you enlarge it, it's readable.
