Cecilia Rose, The Centennial Year!

This site is dedicated to our mother and grandmother, Cecilia Rose Layer Currie Hemmer Beran who will turn 100 years old October 1, 2007. Why start so early? So we, her family, can take the time to post our thoughts and favorite memories of this extraordinary woman that connects us all to each other. Please, join with me as prepare for her centennial year which begins October 1, 2006.

Grandma sayings....

From Janet:

Some of my favorite and fond phrases I hear Grandma say:

"I’m feefee", (meaning I'm sleepy)
"Yes, Ma’am",
"What are ya gonna do when they come for you?";
"Member?" (meaning remember),
"Mama said, gotta go, gotta go".
"They pay no patention" (meaning they pay no attention)

That’s all I can think of now.

Mass Schedule

Aunt Pat has suggested that we all attend the noon mass at St. John's. I have arranged a small surprise that I hope will make Nanny happy. Afterwards, we will have lunch at a place to be named later!

We are coming to town!

Chloe and Pete, Kevin, Gretchen, Celia and Sophie will be in Lockport, September 30-October 2nd. We are staying at the Lockport Motel.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
