March 15 — Write a six-word memoir tribute to one of your female ancestors.
[Note: This post originally ran during the Fearless Females series in March 2010]
This exercise is based on the book, Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous and Obscure. My entries below were first published on my Blog in 2008.
Anna Figlar Alzo (my mother): Generous heart. Wonderful cook. Dearly missed.
Verona Straka Figlar (maternal grandmother): Family devotion. Inner strength. My inspiration.
Elizabeth Fenscak Alzo (paternal grandmother): Fine hair. Tough as nails. Enigma.
