Most of us are fortunate to have the guidance of meaningful women in our lives in addition to our wonderful birth mothers. In my award-winning memoir Gift of a Lifetime: Finding Fulfilling Things in the Unexpected, you’ll fall in love with Fanny. The publication is a present to give to anyone you consider “Mom” in your life at anytime of year. It’s filled with advice of raising a family from a very unique and memorable woman with an unforgettable voice.
Today, I celebrate the woman who gave me and my siblings so much of her life, in her own special way. She was born on this day in 1907 and spent nearly than half of her lifetime as part of our family. If I had to sum up this beautiful human in a few spare words, here is what I’d have to say about her.
The “Battoney” Family misses you dearly, Fanny.
