Estelle Matherne Lambert


As far back as I can remember my grandma’s hair was snow white.  I remember going to spend the night with her and I would ask her to light the coal oil lamp when we went to bed because I was scared to sleep in the dark.  We used to walk to go see the basketball games at the French Settlement school gym.  She would bring a flashlight in case someone did not bring us back home.  She cooked cabbage which I loved.  I enjoyed going visit with her and sitting on the swing on her front porch.  She had two rockers in her kitchen, one of which I still have on my patio.
