On Granny’s Trail has to give a shout out to my very own Granny on the 112th anniversary of her birth.
Annie Marie Tanner was born at Tuba City, Coconino, Arizona on 18 Aug 1901 and died 7 Jul 1996 at Claremont, Los Angeles, California. She eloped with Franklin Ivan Pomeroy on 12 Aug 1923 at Globe, Gila, Arizona.
She was my grandmother and I enjoyed my visits to her Phoenix home most of my growing-up years. The smell of allysum still makes me think of her backyard. I have some of the beautiful tile mosaics she created hanging in my home, and still have some of the baby blankets she made for my children. I could always count on a pair of knitted slippers from her every few Christmases, along with crocheted hangers. I can still remember her laugh, and her love of flowers has been passed down through the generations. She raised three children as an army wife before, during, and after World War II and had to endure many hardships in her life, but did so gracefully. Here are a few pictures of her:
Happy Birthday Granny!
