Great Grandma Wilkins

Evan's Great Grandmother Miriam Wilkins (Jeremy's mom's mom) passed away on Thursday. She was an active, very sharp 91 years old. The week before, she had fallen and broken her femur. She lost a lot of blood during the 6 hour surgical repair, and that caused her kidneys to fail. Thankfully, Jeremy got to visit with Grandma Wilkins on his trip down to the bay area earlier this month. This picture of her with Evan is from July 2007.

One of the things Grandma Wilkins was passionate about was roses. She had been President of the Rose Society and had organized many rose shows. There is even a Miriam Wilkins rose--this is the picture of it I found on the internet!

Grandma Wilkins, you will be missed! XOXO
