Long Live the Matriarch

Posted on March 6, 2012 at 10:40 PM

A sticker for the Grandmothers! Upon my Great-grandmother Theresa's passing at the age of 95 my Aunt Sue took time to write this reflection which I feel beautifully frames the sentiment behind the Matriarch design. 

"GG (short for Great Grandmother), was born in 1889 in Cefalu, Italy, THERESA BROCATO. She had two sisters and three brothers. GG came to America to join her father at the age of nine. She worked 'til she married Salvatore Franco. She bore eight children and raised Josephine, Salvatore, Margaret and Amelia (she suffered the loss of the other four through still birth, ailments and one in an street car accident). GG was a hardworking, determined, proud lady who was very resolute in her beliefs and decisions. Though very strongly opinionated and sometimes exasperating in her dictates, she had a heart of gold and MUCH LOVE for her family, her life. The strength and love she showed them has carried them through many a hard time. Never forget for as her decendants you have much to be proud of...she was the tree and you are the branch, may you go forth and bear good fruit as she did and would want you to do."
