Mabel Jenny Beynon Showalter

2 December 1901 -- May 1974

I consider myself extremely lucky to have known my grandmother Showalter. I have only the fondest memories of this incredible women. I believe that everyone would agree that "Bom" was loving, gentle, and had the strength to endure raising a large family during hard times. My special memories of my grandmother would have to be drinking tea with her. She always made sure there was plenty of sugar and canned milk in my tea! I can remember sitting at her kitchen table and talking with her while we shared a pot of tea and some homemade bread. I was always a little afraid to climb those dark steps up to her apartment but as soon as Bom saw me she greeted me with warmth! I wish I would have spent more time visiting with her... maybe I would have learned more from her.
