'Grammie,' Vivi, Vera Mae Schober was an incredible woman. She was a woman who truly loved her family and stood by them no matter what the circumstances were. She always offered sage advice and always told you exactly what she thought, like it or not. A few things that truly demonstrate her personality and ways of thinking were to: say the alphabet backwards just as fast as any of us could say it the correct way, tell you to always love each other because truly that is all you will ever have, never discuss politics or religion and always have good manners. My grandmother loved Cripple Creek, Bingo, Neil Diamond, Gone with the Wind, pizza, Coors beer and the damn cigarettes that killed her, which she would always say after smoking 'never smoke it's a nasty habit.' She worked for the CFI Steel Mill for over 20 years doing various job's from rail mill, yard maintenance and janitorial, to secretarial, and accounts payable. She enjoyed all her jobs & co-workers for the many years she was there, she also believed hard work always paid off. Vera never called in sick to work, never complained about anything. In fact, she never complained, not once, up until the day she died. Vera was a 'firecracker,' she was never too pooped to pop, she was an amazing cook and the best Grammie anyone could have. She gave absolutely everything she could to everyone she knew. She always remembered everybody's birthday, wanted to know what everyone was having for dinner, how they were doing and what their weather was like. One thing that I hope will continue to happen in memory of her life, is that we will continue to keep her spirit and catch phrases alive within each of us. Here's to you Grammie! May you Rest In Peace, may you have everything that you've ever dreamed of and may you be with your family in heaven watching over all of us!
