My Grandmother Williams

Contributor: Pianomom3 Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

My Grandmother Williams 5/21/2017 I am Brett Neal Williams, a grandson of Laura Gertrude Williams, otherwise known as simply Grandma. I am the oldest son of Neal and Ruth Williams. My dad, Neal, is Grandma’s 12th and youngest child. I grew up on Hahn road in Pingree right next to my grandma (see picture). The term “right next to” in Pingree might be different than you expect. It was actually about a quarter mile away, but there was only a field between our houses. I spent a considerable amount of time at Grandma’s house, and she spent a lot of time at my house. She would always come over for our birthday’s every year. We would pick her up for church, which was a challenge since we usually only drove a 4 door car, with 3 adults and 6 kids, it was packed. Grandma used to say, “If there is room in the heart, there is room in the car.” I always shoveled the snow from her sidewalks in the winter and mowed her lawn in the summers, of course my siblings helped too. I also helped her weed her garden and flower beds and flood irrigate everything. I used to climb her apple tree and pick tart green apples. She had a great swing between a tree and an A-frame that must have been 15 feet tall or something. We could really get swinging really high. I also played a lot of basketball in her driveway, shooting at the basket attached to her garage. Since her garage door had glass windows in it, we had to raise the door just enough so that we wouldn’t break any. I didn’t have a hoop at my house so this is really the place where I learned to love basketball, and pursued it in Jr. High and High School. Grandma also loved to hear me play the piano, or at least she told me she did. I used to go in and practice the piano in her living room and loved her encouragement. We would have family home evenings monthly at her house, that involved the extended Williams family. I got to know my uncles and aunts so much better due to this regular contact. I also saw so many of my cousins. For a while the cousins would have a gift exchange at Christmas time. I remember at these family home evenings that Grandma would often teach us about the gospel and her love of it. She would tell us how grateful she was to be sealed in the temple, and how important it was for each of us to live worthy to be able to return to live with Heavenly Father. I knew that she had a strong testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ, and a deep love for Him. She was the best example of Christ-like love. I remember that she gave me my very own bible. I think that I was probably around 12. We read scriptures pretty regularly in my home, but now I had my own book with my name engraved on it. I knew how much my Grandmother loved the scriptures, and knew that I needed to study this book. She had a remarkable influence on me my entire life. My grandmother died while I was serving my mission in Nagoya, Japan. I remember it well. My mission president called to inform me, and told me that I could call home if I wanted. I had never called home, since the cost was so high. I knew that it would be expensive to call so I didn’t, but I remember crying quite a bit about the loss of my grandmother. She was such a wonderful woman, and a dear friend. I really admired her, and I can’t wait to see her again one day.

Life timeline of Gertrude V Williams

Gertrude V Williams was 8 years old when Albert Einstein publishes his first paper on the special theory of relativity. Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics. His work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. He is best known to the general public for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2, which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation". He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect", a pivotal step in the development of quantum theory.
Gertrude V Williams was 17 years old when Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg, were assassinated by a Yugoslav nationalist named Gavrilo Princip in Sarajevo, sparking the outbreak of World War I. Archduke Franz Ferdinand, Archduke of Austria-Este was a member of the imperial Habsburg dynasty, and from 1896 until his death the heir presumptive (Thronfolger) to the Austro-Hungarian throne. His assassination in Sarajevo precipitated Austria-Hungary's declaration of war against Serbia, which in turn triggered a series of events that resulted in Austria-Hungary's allies and Serbia's declaring war on each other, starting World War I.
Gertrude V Williams was 31 years old when Walt Disney character Mickey Mouse premieres in his first cartoon, "Plane Crazy". Walter Elias Disney was an American entrepreneur, animator, voice actor and film producer. A pioneer of the American animation industry, he introduced several developments in the production of cartoons. As a film producer, Disney holds the record for most Academy Awards earned by an individual, having won 22 Oscars from 59 nominations. He was presented with two Golden Globe Special Achievement Awards and an Emmy Award, among other honors. Several of his films are included in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.
Gertrude V Williams was 42 years old when Adolf Hitler signs an order to begin the systematic euthanasia of mentally ill and disabled people. Adolf Hitler was a German politician, demagogue, and Pan-German revolutionary, who was the leader of the Nazi Party, Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945 and Führer ("Leader") of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. As dictator, Hitler initiated World War II in Europe with the invasion of Poland in September 1939, and was central to the Holocaust.
Gertrude V Williams was 47 years old when World War II: The Allied invasion of Normandy—codenamed Operation Overlord—begins with the execution of Operation Neptune (commonly referred to as D-Day), the landing of 155,000 Allied troops on the beaches of Normandy in France. The Allied soldiers quickly break through the Atlantic Wall and push inland in the largest amphibious military operation in history. The Allies of World War II, called the United Nations from the 1 January 1942 declaration, were the countries that together opposed the Axis powers during the Second World War (1939–1945). The Allies promoted the alliance as a means to control German, Japanese and Italian aggression.
Gertrude V Williams was 60 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
Gertrude V Williams was 67 years old when Thirty-five hundred United States Marines are the first American land combat forces committed during the Vietnam War.
