My maternal grandmother, Clara Lee Koonce Farrow, passed away today. She was 82 years old and was always affectionately known as Mother. Mother had 9 children (7 boys and 2 girls). Her oldest and youngest sons preceded her in death. She was the matriarch of the family and lived to see 4 generations of her descendants.

For me, my grandmother was a teacher and storyteller. She was never without a story to tell you or a lesson to teach you. She lives on today via the 4 generations of lives she created. We are her legacy and through us she gains immortality.

Mother, you earned your rest. Know that you are missed and loved.

Clara Lee Koonce Farrow
March 20, 1926 - June 20, 2008
