Florence Mae Carmany Walker 1924-2012

Ma and Me at a Church Christmas Party

Thursday, the dearest person in the world to me, my beloved Ma, passed away.

Pansy Quilt from Ma

She was an amazing woman.  A wife for 67 years, wonderful mother and grandmother, an active member of her church.  And she was so talented, a fabulous cook, gardener, and quilter.

I am so very grateful to be her granddaughter.  I’m thankful for every minute I spent with her.  I’m thankful that she shared her talent with me and taught me to quilt.  But above all, I am thankful that she taught me so much about what it is to love and that she truly loved me unconditionally.
