Clara Bell Fuller is my Grandma, my dad's mom. She was raised and lived in a tiny mining town called Mammoth in the San Pedro Valley in Arizona. She was the oldest of 7 and the only one of her siblings to graduate from College. She got a teaching degree from ASU in 1939. She taught elementary school in Mammoth for 40 years until she retired. She had 2 children, my dad and my Aunt, 12 Grandchildren and 23+ Great Grandchildren. She was and is a great example to all us. Always teaching us how to be a hard worker and how important education is. My Grandma passed away last month at the age of 95. We will all miss her deeply.

*Awesome photo of my family and Grandma when we lived in Ohio. I am the little one with the bowl cut that my mom is holding. :)
*At our wedding.
The following photos where taken a few weeks before she passed away. We were all together celebrating my niece's baby blessing. This was the last time most of us saw her and I will always cherish these photos.
*My Grandma with her 2 children.
Her funeral was March 20th in Mammoth, AZ. Although it was such a hard day for me personally, it was filled with family and friends of my Grandma. So many people came to celebrate my Grandma's life and they all were influenced by her in some way.
*My amateur attempt of a panorama of the view in front of my Grandma's grave site. Such a beautiful view of the mountains and valley.
After we went back to my Grandma's home and talked about our favorite memories of her.
*All of my siblings remember swinging on these swings when we would visit. It was touching seeing my nieces, nephews and cousins kids playing on it.
This post was mainly written and put together for my family. To everyone else, I hope I was able to convey how much I love her and will miss her.
