There is a brief post on Daughter on Duty, acknowledging the passage of my beloved uncle, the third of the four remaining members of the generation to leave us this winter. You can read it here with links to the story of my family’s farm, on which Uncle Donald lived nearly all of his 106 years.
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.
