My grandmother had another stroke.  I went to go see her with my mother in order to say goodbye.

She's 99 years old and has had a really interesting life. I feel so grateful I was able to see her again and I took the video for family members who weren't able to make it.

Her name was Frieda and was born in Warden, Montana. Her parents immigrated from Germany when they were very young. Her husband was a farmer and she spent most of her time helping on the farm and gardening so she could can the produce. They also ran a janitorial service.

They moved to Washington state in the 1960s. She was a great cook and loved making German food. When I was little my grandfather would invite me over for sleepovers at their house.

She had six kids and almost 20 grandkids.
