My family received word tonight that my maternal grandmother died at around 5 pm. She had been suffering from Alzheimer's disease for the past sixteen years and was 94 at the time of her death. Even so, we are a bit shocked that she passed so suddenly as the nurses were to alert my mother if death were imminent. She passed peacefully and quickly in her sleep.
Funeral arrangements have been tentatively set for Monday afternoon in Newport. She will be buried next to my grandfather at Union Cemetery. I will preside over the service.
Please Keep our family in your prayers.
