From her two children she was given 6 grandchildren Frank, Michael and Mark William Aerdelman Jr. and Kristine, Laura and Brian Elliott Her granddaughter Kristine is married and had Frances 2 great grandchildren Elliott and Autumn Tran. Kitty Grandma, as she was called, loved all animals. She was always feeding stray cats in the neighborhood and had her fair share of pets. Frances loved watching Lawrence Welk, I love Lucy, and anything with animals in it. She loved to go for car rides and would search for the naked surfer statue on PCH while having her ice cream drip down her dress. She loved her coffee with cream and sugar because that is the way that her father drank it and no matter how bad the coffee was she would say it was the best she ever had. She loved to sing and would even if she didn't know the words. With her passing we feel grief and relief that she is now able to go home to her parents on the farm in Illinois.
