Ada Flory Lundquist, d. 22 March 1973

Lundquist, Emanuel and Ada

Ada Flory married my great-grandpa, Emanuel Richard Lundquist in 1913 after my great-grandma Grace Honor Bushman Lundquist died at age 38, leaving seven young children motherless.  She was a wonderful woman who cared for our family.

She died on this day in 1973.

Here is how I remember Aunt Ada, as I and my cousins admired one of her quilts.  She was nearly blind, but she continued to make quilts for all of us.  This was at a family reunion in the early 1970s not long before she died.Lundquist, Ada Florey, daughters and quilt

    Hi Ann, I remember her as Aunt Ada. She made a quilt for Jill. What’s sad is no one told me she was my Step-Grandmother until after she died. I sure do wish I had known…
