Today we lost the oldest member of our family. her name is Ina and she is my Mothers' oldest sister. She was cantankerous, opinionated, and generous and we all loved her. She will be missed by all.
Her husband and children all proceeded her in passing. She did have 3 grandsons and 7 great grandchildren and 2 great great grandkids. Her favorite thing to do was travel, so the last few years were hard on her. She could jump in a car and just drive. It didn't matter to her where she went as long as she was going.
Her loves , besides her family, were her hometown of Rockford, The Chicago Cubs, and Bears, and the place she worked for 40 years. General Electric.
She was a simple woman with all the old values you would expect from someone of her age. She would have been 91 on the 6 th of June.
So it is with a heavy heart that my family will lay to rest yet another family member this year.
Goodbye Aunt Ina, and I still like PT Cruisers!
