My grandmother passed away yesterday evening.  My Aunt Jane wrote this:

"Ruth Lehman was born in Bowie, Maryland on November 19, 1915.  She was a
devout member of the Bowie Methodist Church and a Worthy Matron of the
Eastern Star.   The church and parsonage were built by her father, Millard
Nathaniel Schafer.  Ruth retired after many years of service with the Bank
of Bowie.  Ruth is preceded in death by her beloved husband, Grayson Edward
Lehman and enjoyed 59 years of marriage.  She is survived by her son and
daughter-in-law Gary Grayson Lehman and Elizabeth Jean Lehman of Orlando
and her daughter and son-in-law Jane Lehman Wood and David Wood of Houston,
Texas, along with 4 grandchildren, Mark, Jonathan, Ben and Bethany  and
great grand daughter, Katelynn Grace."

She lived a long, great life.  She was a fantastic grandmother and I have very fond memories.  She is better and happy now.
