Fearless Females: March 15: Six-Word Tribute

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.

Excellent idea. Especially with Mother's day just around the corner. I think I will invite my family and friends to respond also. Sneaky way to get ideas for writers block in recording family story with ancestor personalities added.
