Erin Pavic Decoration

Erin Pavic of East Taylor Township writes that her grandmother, Pernina Reed, saw these calico ornaments on her sister, Sarah’s, tree while visiting her in Arizona many years ago. “As a surprise, Sarah mailed them to her the following Christmas,” Pavic said. “Every year after, we teased her about how ugly the calico ornaments were, but they were special to her and she always hung them proudly on her tree. Now, her two daughters and five grandchildren all hang one of ‘Grandma’s ugly ornaments’ on their trees as a special remembrance to a wonderful mother and grandmother who is missed so very much.”
