The Ides of March Were Good to ole Granny

Madeline Korcsmaros was born on March 15, the Ides of March in the year 1910. And while Shakespeare's Caesar was warned to beware the Ides, Madeline, better known as Granny Kush was blessed on that date. She lived nearly 98 years-and saw quite a bit in that near century. Wars and the Great Depression, inventions and prosperity-all while living a good life with good family and good health. Ironically, Granny was a worrier, convinced she'd die of cancer or some other ailment-and there were many she worried about! But, she lived to be nearly 100! Granny left us in October and is now in a better place. I just hope they have rocking chairs and good restaurants up there in heaven! We miss you Granny and we hope that you passed along a little of that longevity gene to the rest us.
