1926 – 2012
Today will no doubt be a rough one for my family as we say goodbye to my grandmother, Georgene Vehe. There are many things I will remember about my grandmother. She was funny, with a bite, who would literally show you she was biting her tongue instead of saying more. She was classy and always very put together style-wise. She enjoyed bright lipsticks and live music. She loved to travel, sun tea and biscotti. She was a breast cancer survivor who never let on, to my sister and I, the struggle she was going through when we were younger. About a year ago they found a lump in her breast, which proved to be kidney cancer, and she decided that she wouldn’t seek treatment. I can’t say enough about the role Hospice played throughout all of this. They were utterly remarkable in helping my family to manage and cope with my grandmother’s declining health and we never would have made it through without them. It has been a hard summer and I know she is in a better place now. I will miss her greatly and cherish every memory I’ve made with her.
