Memorial Board

Hi everyone. I don’t want to seem morbid, but as we get older, death becomes a part of our lives. Rather than wallow in grief, why not celebrate the life that was.

My mother in law recently passed and I wanted to memorialize her life for my husband and her friends. She spent 40 years teaching, had lots of awards and many, many friends. While I do not know the names of everyone in the photos, her friends were thrilled to see her life showcased in this way.

Board #1 was set up to show my mother in law’s younger life – from growing up in Pennsylvania to attending college in Maryland.

Board #2 was set up to show my mother in law’s later life – from having children to working in the school districts to enjoying retirement.
