Remembering Gma

Chris' Gma passed away last Saturday evening. She was surrounded by much of her family. Today, I'd like to share some of my favorite photos of sweet, spunky Gma.

And, for those that aren't long time followers, here's a link to another post featuring Gma.

 Here's Gma ready for Crazy Hat Uno at Thanksgiving, 2009:
And at the Hill Family Reunion the summer of 2010:

(chatting with Chris)
(hanging out in the Hen House)

Gma was always one to lend a helping hand, as seen here when she insisted on helping out the boys during our shed weekend!
A few shots of Gma at our wedding:
(with Justin)
(being escorted down the aisle by Conrad)
(Eskimo kisses with the bride)
(sitting with Jojo at the Rehearsal Dinner)
(dancing with Chris)

(getting a lipstick refresh from Jojo)
(chatting with Chris at the Sunday brunch)

And, of course, Gma (the King's Mom) thoroughly enjoyed her time at last year's Mardi Gras parade and ball!
 (proudly wearing her "King's Mom" pin)
(waiting for her son, King PD, to arrive on this float)
(with her son, Uncle Dewey)
(and with her other son, King PD)

Lastly, here are two photos that don't really fit into any other category, but that I think are delightful:
Gma will be greatly missed, but we are happy that she's tearing it up in Heaven at the most amazing party imaginable!

(Seeing as it's Wednesday, I'm still linking back to my pal, Alison, who features pics from the past in "Way Back When-sday:)


  1. Tears are just running down my face Katie.... She was such a wonderful person... Always had that great big smile.... She truly will be missed..The Hill children were so blessed to have her as a grandma....

  2. Oh, yes, I loved that smile too! Your photos are wonderful. This post is a great tribute to a great lady, who totally endeared herself to Tom and me during the few years we knew her. Thanks, Katie for these wonderful memories of G'Ma.

  3. Seems like such a sweet lady! And such a sweet post to remember her by :)
