If you are reading this, I am on my endless journey. I am in my Father’s House.
Hi. My name is Louise “Gail” Grammer. God brought me into this world on Aug. 25, 1954, to two awesome parents, Charles A. and Nellie Grammer. I have a twin brother, Louis “Dale” (Cindy) Grammer. I am the younger twin, so I kicked him out. I am also survived by big brother, Charles Ray (Linda) Grammer; little brother, Terry Lee (Susan) Grammer; and a little sister, Eva “Sue” (Frank) Cole.
Anything I did, it was by God’s Grace. I graduated in 1972 from Columbus North High School, I then graduated from the University of Indianapolis with a degree in Liberal Arts, and later I graduated from Vincennes University with an Audio Visual Degree. While there, I was on the Dean’s List. I worked at the Commons Mall in 1976, recorded surgeries at both Columbus Regional Hospital and University of Louisville Hospital, worked for Grammer Landscape Maintenance and worked as a caregiver for DSI. I have been a Sunday School teacher for several churches, and I participated on the Walk to Emmaus #21.
The funeral will be conducted at 11 a.m. on Thursday, June 2, 2016, at Elizabethtown United Methodist Church with the Rev. Larry McIntosh and the Rev. Charles Agnew officiating. Visitation will be from 4 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the church and one hour prior to the service on Thursday. Burial will be at Sandcreek Azalia Friends Cemetery.
