This photo is one that I have the digital image of from scanning photos after my grandmother’s death in 1990.

I remember Great-Grandma Lawrence.  She died in 1980 when I was in Junior High School.  This photo shows her as I remember her.  She is sitting in her rocking chair in her home.  Not in the picture but in the middle of the room was a wood burning stove that provided both heat for the home and a cooking surface for her.  The home did have running water and there was an outhouse at the back of the home.

Great Grandma was a quilter and Mom has one of her quilts that she got after Great Grandma’s death in 1980.
