New post on Daughter on Duty.
I traveled to Tucson last week for my aunt’s memorial service. Ruth was my father George’s little sister, younger by fourteen months. They were close; and she was like a sister to my mother as they waited together at the family farm in Michigan for their husbands to return from the war.
I am a Pacific Northwest native transplanted to the southeast for 36 years. In 2012, I returned to my childhood home and fell in love with this corner of the country again. I am a grandmother, a storywriter, a teacher, an attention payer, a hiker, and a back roads wanderer. Check out my website (and my memoir) at www.gretchenstaebler.com.
