Thankful Thursday – Oma’s Birthday

13

Today would have been my maternal grandmother’s 100th birthday! Elise Gegenheimer Haberkern was born on 28 February 1919 in Ittersbach, Baden-Württemburg, Germany. I wrote about her origin store here. Oma, as she was known to us, married my grandfather in 1942, they arrived in the United States in 1952, and she died in 2010 at age 91. She lived a long life, full of energy, and devoted to her family. Below are a few of my favorite pictures of my beloved grandmother. Happy Birthday Oma!
