For Brita

Brita Oberwetter, 1923-2011
This post is in remembrance of Jill's mother, Brita, who passed away last week. Brita was born in Norway and came to the United States after World War II. She worked as a nurse, which is how she met her husband, Art. She was a loving mother to two daughters and grandmother to three grandchildren. Her favorite flowers were peonies and lilacs, and she made beautiful hand-knit Norwegian sweaters and mittens.

Brita, we wish you a peaceful journey into the next world, and thank you for sharing your time on this earth with your family and friends. You are loved, and you will be missed.
