Matriarch and Pillar of our Family

Today I entered my grandmother’s name, Marie Schleicher, into Family Search as “deceased” December 27, 2020. On December 31st she would have been 97 years old. The year 2020 is going out with a bang for my family and me.

Although we are in shock, we are comforted by the knowledge that she will be held in the arms of Christ and her husband. My grandma was the pillar of our family. She held us up as the Schleicher family. She was our strong foundation and kept us together like a sturdy structure when the winds of life threatened to blow us apart.

Although I miss my grandmother, and feel her loss within my soul, today I choose to follow her example and be a pillar within the structure she built. She taught me to be strong and I hope to follow her example.
During this time, I look to the Savior Jesus Christ, as He is the one who gives hope, the one who knows how I feel in my loss and shock, the one who knows how to succor me and my family as we celebrate the wonderful long life of our grandmother.

I will remember you each day as I continue on this journey and choose to emulate the good you shared while on this earth.
Marie Claire Rival Schleicher. I love you! ♥️♥️♥️
