Today was my Moms birthday.
If she was still on this planet, she would be 100 years old.
She was a little pistol, whose feet hardly ever touched the ground.
Busy every minute..
She loved her sisters and her baby brother, and we had so many fun times
during Holiday gatherings.
Many of us cousins are still close because of those get together's and the crazy Trowbridge girls.
She never drove until after my Dad died, then at the ripe old age of 55 she took lessons.
One week after she got her license she headed for Iowa with sweet little Sally and totaled her car.
After that we all referred to her as Crash.
She was one Independent little Irish Lass, a nurse who worked until she was 65
at a State Mental Hospital.
When she retired she spent time with her grandchildren in between her trips to Arizona.
In 1991 just before her illness she reigned as the St Patrick's Day Queen
in her hometown celebration.
She loved every minute of it.
She is missed!!
