Happy Birthday Mom!

Today my mother, Sharyn Ann (Senecal) Coughlin, would have been 67 years old.  She was born at Champlain Valley Hospital, Plattsburgh, Clinton County, New York to Ernest John Senecal and Eulalia Mary (Duprey) Senecal of AuSable Forks, Clinton County, New York and was their only child.

I found a cute baby picture of my mother in my GOLDMINE :

And I can't resist another photo of me, Mom and my sister Pam when she was a baby:

Unfortunately my mother died of a brain aneurysm on January 3, 1992 in North Charleston, Charleston County, South Carolina.  She is buried at Dorchester Memory Gardens, Summerville, Dorchester County, South Carolina. My father wanted to make sure she was facing St Theresa the Little Flower Catholic Church, which is across the street.  (Please remember there are very few Catholic churches in South Carolina!)

I have so many wonderful memories of my mother.  There was so much more I wanted to learn from her but never got the chance.  I hope one day my nephew will know that he has  both his maternal and paternal grandmothers smiling down at him from heaven!!

  1. What a lovely tribute to your mom! I understand how much you miss her, my mom is gone too.
    What a coincidence that your mom came from Plattsburgh! My brother was in the Air Force and stationed there in the early 60's. He got married in Plattsburgh in 1964 so of course my sil is from there. She was born in Dec 1946 so somewhat close there too!
    Isn't it a small world?
    So enjoyed your blog!
