THE OGDEN VALLEY NEWS Volume VI, Issue VII Page 11 July 15, 2002 Announcements Weddings Obituaries Tribute to Grandma Connie Western Insurance. The groom graduated from Fremont High School and works for Pine Ridge Homes. The couple will make their home in West Weber upon returning from their honeymoon. Grandma Connie was, and still is, the most determined and creative person I have ever known. She was always coming up with some trip to take or art project to do with us. I have always admired her strength and courage; she was “strong-likea-bull” as she used to say. Even while she was in the hospital, she showed the staff and our family that she still had that spunk and spirit in her. She just never gave up. I hope that I will be able to live up to the wonderful example that my Grandma Connie set for me. Kirsten B.

Everyone loved Grandma Connie. She had the best sense of humor, and was very artistic. Once, we went to her house and painted paintings on boards with acrylic paint. Hers turned out to be the best, undoubtedly, but we all had a lot of fun just being together. That night, she sang some of her favorite songs to us at bedtime. Everyone knew how much she loved to spoil us. Kaitlin Benson Krausmann 13 years old My grandma always had something to do. I never came and had nothing to do. I remember every time she came to my house, my sisters and I each had an act with her and we would stay up late and do crafts. I remember one night we came here from our home in the suburbs of Chicago. We stayed up and painted all night and when all the paintings were done, all of a sudden, I was inspired by my mom and I muttered a poem and my grandma said, “Wow, Tommy, that was beautiful!” So we wrote it down on the painting. Tommy Benson Krausmann 10 years old Grandma would always call me “John James.” Me and Grandma would snuggle up and sing songs together and I love my special Grandma. I lived with my Grandma and Grandpa for 2 and a half years. I loved the garden and helped water it every day. Grandma and I loved to dig in the dirt together, laughing, planting flowers and having fun. John James Benson 6 years old Just Listed! 1 bedroom Wolf Lodge condo. Furnished. Only $75,000!
