Granny was employed by Sidron Manufacturing and Jeans Hardware for many years. She enjoyed volunteering for the Comanche Volunteer Fire Department, The Comanche Food Pantry, and the Sand Hill Cemetery Association. In her free time she loved to sit outside with a Dr. Pepper and a Snickers bar. She also loved sewing for her family; whether it be patching holes in our clothing or performing emergency surgery on our baby dolls. Granny was never more excited than when she received the gift of great grandchildren. Her eyes would light up “as big as saucers” when she played with the babies; she thought the world of her “Little Dandy’s”. Many knew her as Gracie Faye but she will forever be our Granny.
