My Aunt Marian, fondly known to us as "Tiddle" had a very healthy life until this last May. She lived a long and fulfilling life until just past her 94th birthday. She was a prim and proper little lady. Small in stature but big in love and commitment to her family and friends. As a professional secretary (she knew shorthand and took dictation as a secretary at a paving company), she was always dressed stylish and most of the time had matching purse and shoes. Her 5 1/2 size foot allowed us as little girls to play dress up and they almost fit and we would get pads and take dictation while playing in our playhouse our grandfather built outside in their yard. But, she was never too prim or too proper to get down on the floor and play with us. She and my Aunt Jeanie would hide Easter eggs over and over and over again in the yard, until I'm sure they were sick of finding new places to hide them. We spent hours at my G'ma Ready's and Aunt's home. We spent most birthdays and holidays with her until we moved to Colorado in 1975.
After we moved, she made many trips to see our parents home where they lived in Ft Collins, CO. Our mother was her youngest sister and our father was her only brother-in-law. They traveled together to Ireland twice and "Tiddle" did all the research to find out our genealogy and family history. She would even visit me in Colorado Springs to enjoy her great nephews and niece. She particularly got a "big" kick out of our middle son, Trever, who always was dressed up at a cowboy or a construction worker. She would laugh at him until she cried.
On one of these visits, we were discussing how to stay limber and "Tiddle" got up from where she was sitting and immediately did a ballet split right next to my sofa. She had to have been around 75 years old then. I will never forget that moment. What a surprise. Now that's what anyone would call "limber"!
She and my Aunt Jeanie cared for my grandparents in their home for years and set an example of responsibility and love for one another. She cared for her friends and those she knew needed care. In her earlier years, she would take older ladies shopping and help them with there checkbooks and finances.
So many more memories, but these are a few that come immediately to mind.
She was a gentle soul, like my G'ma Ready and she will be greatly missed.
