52 Questions in 52 weeks - Week 6

Week 6: Have any of your family members died? If so, explain what they died from and
what you remember of their death; the circumstances of their death.

Wow... many...

The first person I remember dying was my Aunt Ruby Fredrich. She had breast cancer and it spread, I think... I was little... I don't remember it all.

Grandma Mary Elizabeth Love Pearon passed away when I was 14. She had pancreatic cancer.

Grandma Alice Augusta Baker Fredrich passed away when I was 15. She had diabetes.

Grandpa Leo John Pearon passed away when I was 18.

My niece, Tracie Lea Nichols, was murdered in Durham, NC. She was 19. I was 24. She was my little sister more than a niece. This one event changed so much in my world.

My Dad, Clyde Winford Fredrich passed away in 2015. He had Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.

I have had several uncles and aunts that have passed away, too. It's weird to me when people have never had anyone pass away. I have been to more funerals than I care to count.

I ran across this challenge about a year ago and thought it was a marvelous idea...

The whole idea is to tell your own story by answering one question a week. People that love ancestry love finding diaries, journals, and letters, because they tell about everyday life. Not just the big stuff, but the every day little stuff.
