Ruby Grace Lundquist Smuin b. 6 January 1898 in Salt Lake City, Utah

smuin, ruby with grace

I found this photo this last year in my Aunt Elsie’s scrapbook.  Elsie is a sister to my grandmother, Ruby Lundquist (m. Franklin Smuin).  In this photo, Ruby is holding my mother, Grace Helen Smuin (b. 14 January 1930).

I love this photo and her happy and beautiful face as a young mother.   She would have been 32 years old in 1930,  the same age I was when I held my first child.

I was born on the 5th of January, a day-early birthday gift to my grandma Ruby, who at the time was battling breast cancer.  Ruby died 23 February 1959, a month and a half after I was born.   I am happy to know we met, and she held me in her arms before she died.

This week we celebrate our birthdays, my grandma and I.  I am sending my love to her in her heavenly home.
