Today is my grandmother’s birthday. She would have been 96 today, but she passed away in March. She’s one of the few people in my life who died that was truly ready to go. I had the opportunity to visit her a few months before her death, and she told me she was ready. What faith it is to be at a point where you can say, “Lord, I’m ready.”
She had outlived two husbands, two sons, and several grandchildren and great grandchildren. But she also left behind many other children and grandchildren who miss her greatly. She doesn’t have an official obituary on the web, so today I thought I’d offer up this little reminder of a life well lived.
Rest in Peace, Pauline Johnson Jones Elmore. Wife to Kenny Jones and Austin Elmore. Mother to Carolyn, David, Troy, Jerry, Charlotte, and James. She was a true matriarch of our family and she will be forever missed.
In Memory of Pauline Jones Elmore
