Example Eulogies For A Grandmother
To Grandmother From Granddaughter:
My name is Jackie and I am one of Annette’s grandchildren. It is difficult to put into words how much my grandmother meant to me. She was a strong willed and intelligent woman. She was very successful and achieved a lot in her life. She passed a lot of wisdom down to her children who I am happy to say passed it on to me. I didn’t get to spend as much time with my grandmother as I would have liked, but even though our time together was limited I felt like we developed a strong bond.
My grandmother loved life; she loved her family, she loved her friends, she loved her pets, she loved nature and she loved god. Not matter what situation she was presented with, no matter how challenging; she was able to overcome it. My grandmother always taught me that no matter what happens in life, if you remain calm and positive you could overcome it. It was lessons like that, that I will remember the rest of my life. It is incredible what a smile and kind heart can do.
As long as I can remember my grandmother always shared with me the importance of faith. My grandmother was a very religious woman, but would never preached her faith. She showed me how a belief in God helped shape her life. I owe my grandmother for my passion and faith in God.
I also learned how to bake from my grandmother and mother. Whenever the two of them got together they would takeover the kitchen. They would bake for hours and our house always smelled like a bakery. It was a surprise that none of use were fat! I really appreciated the time my grandmother spent showing me how to bake. Many of my oldest memories are in the kitchen standing on a stool helping my grandmother bake cookies.
My grandmother inspired me in a lot of ways and she meant more to me than you can possibly imagine. Even though my grandmother and I didn’t always live in the same town, we remained close. Grandmother’s love for family, life and God was inspirational to me. I hope that I can live my life with the same honor and respect as she did. I will always remember the time we spent together and love her forever.
