My Nana was the “Greatest Nana,” and my mom had recently gotten those words inscribed on a colorful beach towel for her to use. She really was the greatest.

My childhood is filled with memories of being with cousins in her home for sleepovers and being amazed at all of my toothpaste and toothbrush options she always had handy for guests (Colgate was my favorite!). She had a secret closet in one of the bedrooms that was full of puka shell necklaces and princess dresses for my cousins and I to play dress-up. Among my favorite games were Mankala and Loopin Louie. She always had an “mini-rebounder” in her living room - as she called it - for everyone to get exercise. She was the most-health conscious person I’ve ever known, and I like to think I inherited my love of nutrition and exercise from her! She had a love of grapefruits and I had my first grapefruit at her house with a grapefruit spoon (which was life-changing and I’ve never been able to do without one since!) and then squeezing the grapefruit juice into a bowl and drinking it. Nana’s house was the BEST place to be!

Nana was the queen of cards for all occasions. If card-buying was a competition, she would win hands-down every time. We would all look forward to what whimsical card she would choose for baptisms, birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries, or “just because it made her laugh.”

I had the privilege of introducing my two sons to her and before our trip she made a call to inquire about each of their interests and to seek out toys that fit those interests. When we arrived, their bed was stocked with toys for them and my 6-year-old still remembers the big trip to her house. She loved to give gifts and all of her gifts were very meaningful to the person and it gave her great joy to give them!

Above all, I am eternally grateful for the love of family and of the Lord that she has passed down for generations. Her legacy will live on through all of us. We love you “Greatest Nana!”

Nana

I have so many fond memories of nana, I won’t even be able to scratch the surface of all of the things she did for us and with us, But I’ll try.

Nana, along with mom and dad were a huge influence on my faith. She took me to church every Sunday morning in her little white Honda to First Presbyterian, and sometimes on the way we would stop at Albertsons to visit the meat counter for their free bacon samples. Then every Sunday night she would come over to “babysit,” but she didn’t like it when you called it that. She called it spending time with her grandkids. I only remember her turning on the tv once when she was over on Sunday nights, and that was to watch the Wizard of Oz. Which dad said I wasn’t allowed to see. She would always bring games over; dominos, mancala, go fish, old maid, or who could forget loopin louie. She was always so happy to be around us, I only remember her getting annoyed with us one time, and that was when she asked David to put something away in his “billfold,” which was a term we had never heard before. She thought David was just messing around to get a rise out of her.

I remember her taking me to the Arlington Art Museum, to concerts, and to see plays like Cats, and the Nutcracker. She even took me to see Disney on Ice one time. I remember eating the peanut butter and grape jelly sandwich she packed me, and watching my favorite princess Belle singing and skating on the ice.

She was so passionate about education, Sometimes she would bring me to work with her at Ebby Halliday, and she would give me worksheets to do and taught me hooked on phonics.

She loved for us to go to museums, some I have even taken my own kids to. The ones that stick out to me are; The Cowgirl Museum, the Fort Worth Science Museum, and the Aviation museum.

When I got older I would walk to her house after school and she would make me smoothies to drink while I did my homework. I told her once that I had never tried lobster before and I wanted to know what it tasted like, so when my friend and I came over after school she made us lobster and showed us how to crack it and eat it.

The same happiness and love that she had for us was multiplied by getting to spend time with her great grandkids. She loved to have us over and watch the kids play on the floor. She used to go to Goodwill and garage sales to fill her house with toys for her great grandkids to play with. She even made up a room and bought cribs for them to spend the night. When it was time to leave she didn’t want us to pick up the kids mess, for days I was told she enjoyed looking at where all of the toys were left and remembering them being there and playing with them.

Recently we got the opportunity to spend 2 weeks at mom and dads taking care of nana, and during that time she would take naps on the couch downstairs so she could listen to the kids running around and playing. And while others might be annoyed by the noise, she slept with a smile on her face the whole time. That’s just who she was. A family woman. A strong, independent, and stubborn woman who would eat beans if it meant she could provide for her family. She never asked for anything for herself, only what she could do for you. She had a true servants heart, just like Jesus.

I can’t imagine another Easter without her bunny cake with the cut out colored paper ears, and the jelly bean nose and eyes, or another thanksgiving or Christmas without her rolls. It’s a good thing I have her recipe in Ryan’s safe.

Beautiful Memories of a Beautiful Women, We have learned so much from her. She was the best Nana to my Children, A Wonderful Mother and Mother in-law. Self sacrificing, Kind but Strong. She would always tell me fight for your Children. Everything she did there was a lesson involved in it. She taught me many recipes, and Cleaning secrets and how to be a Gracious Host. She took me under her Wings as a New Bride to her Son 33 years a go.She was my second Mom, as my Mother lived 1,000 miles away from me. We didn’t always agree but usually Mother knows best. I will carry on her Legacy. Love and Miss you!

Patricia Caldwell was a long time member of First Presbyterian Church at 1200 Collins Street in Arlington Texas. Great memories of Us going there and her taking my Children to Sunday School there every Sunday. Her Faith was very strong. She said, having Faith and knowing God is what got her through hard times.
