Here is mine:

My mom was Betty Virginia (Carringer) Seaver (1919-2002), who lived her whole life in San Diego, California.  She was the daughter and solely youngster of Lyle L. and Emily Okay. (Auble) Carringer, who married in 1918 in San Diego.  She married Frederick W. Seaver (1911-1983) in 1942 in San Diego.  I’m her firstof three sons, born in 1943.  Stan was born in 1946 and Scott in 1955.  

1)  My mom was actually good.  She skipped a grade in elementary college.  I’ve seen her report playing cards from highschool.  She graduated from San Diego State Faculty in 1940 with a Bachelor of Science in Artwork, and taught junior highschool Artwork and English for a number of years.  The bookcase in our house on thirtieth Avenue was stocked with a World Ebook encyclopedia, non-fiction and fiction books by well-known authors.  She knew historical past, geography, artwork, literature, and discovered about sports activities.  In her later years, she beloved sitting on the deck of her Level Loma house with a view of San Diego Bay and town and skim paperback thriller books each day.  

2)  My mom was an artist.  Artwork was a stress reliever for her.  With three little boys, she wanted that, and my father’s cousin, Dorothy Chamberlain, supplied an outlet within the Fifties by choosing her up and driving to a scenic place in San Diego and they’d work on water shade work.  I want I had a few of them!  Additionally they went to Spanish Village in Balboa Park (an artist haven) to color, share experiences with others, and see totally different artwork kinds.  Finally, within the Seventies she determined to create copper enamel scenes (she specialised in angels!) utilizing skinny copper plates, placing  enamel paint in numerous colours on the plates to type a bigger scene or mural, firing up her kiln to soften and repair the paint, after which framing the items.  We have now a lot of her items in our front room, as do my brothers.

3)  My mom was a serene individual.  She was not often offended and by no means swore, and any anger was verbally directed at herself or a state of affairs.  She beloved to take a seat quietly and skim, drink sherry, discuss with a pal, watch tv.  She took occasions that occurred to her and the household in stride and with a constructive angle – “how can we repair this or make it higher.”  

A bonus:  She was not overly keen on household historical past.  She knew three of her grandparents however nearly nothing about earlier generations and did not appear to care about their life tales.
