Grandma Loebbaka’s house always smelled of homemade bread. During the Depression, her kids sold the bread on the street corners to help support the family. Later in life, she sold the bread to support her passion for oil painting. She was also a composer and musician. She always played “Danny Boy” on the organ for me. Sadly, the talent seems not to have been passed down in the family.
