Obit and a small picture of Grannie

My Cousin Lea pointed me at the obituary that was printed in the local paper for my Grandmother. If you’re interested you can find it by searching the obituaries at poststar.com. I’m going to reprint it below for posterity’s sake, since newspapers have terrible issues with maintaining access to online content in the long term (I should know, I worked for them for ~6-7 years, and by way of example, try looking at the aforementioned poststar.com for content that’s as old as, say, this website, which has more than 6 years worth of stuff tucked into it).
