A Life Well Lived
Marjorie Riffle Gower lived a life filled with love and family. She grew up in a simpler time and with a family that she was so very proud of. In fact, in recent years she talked more about her Mom and Dad and her younger year memories. Strong willed and determined her favorite things were her house and her piano. Her favorite people were her family. Children and grandchildren were definitely at the top of the list.
Marjorie loved her coffee and peanut butter. She really loved eating in general and claimed she ate all the time and anything you would put in front of her. In the golden years she really enjoyed her sleep and watching the world from her home’s windows.
Marjorie was truly a wonderful grandmother to our children. Many years ago she watched them when I returned to work when they were babies. You know you only trust your babies to the very best of the best.
The reason I am writing about this for Eat Well Buffalo is that sometimes wellness encompasses so much more than healthy eating. It includes love, joy, family, and making each day count. Marjorie passed away on Friday, January 26th, and while she will be sorely missed, we have wonderful memories from times spent with her. Now, when I have a cup of coffee and spread some peanut butter on my cracker, I will remember what really matters in life, which includes much of the same things that were important to her. Rest in peace, Marjorie.
