May 8, 2009 — Proven Winners has selected their Mother-of-the-Year for 2009. Shirley Spade of Fitchburg, Wisconsin was nominated by her loving granddaughter, Angela Spade, who has autism and calls Shirley “The Can Do Grandma.”
In Angela’s 100-word essay about her grandmother, she writes: “I am filled with interests and passions. Grandma expands on all my interests – allowing me a full happy, rewarding, productive life. She taught me how to cook, cross-stitch, scrapbook and she even tried YOGA with me! Grandma never thinks about what I might NOT be able to do, but what I CAN do.”
We are happy to award Shirley – “The Can Do Grandma” – with 40 Proven Winners plants, Proven Winners plant food, a WaterWise kit, and an iGarden t-shirt this spring. The attached slide announcing Shirley as the grand winner will follow every Proven Winners commercial on the Weather Channel this Sunday.
Some 160 daughters, sons, sisters, husbands, daughter-in-laws, best friends and grandchildren entered a deserving mother, wife, friend or grandmother into the Proven Winners’ Mother-of-the-Year contest. All are winners in our eyes and we commend each and every one for the dedication they give to their families. Proven Winners will be awarding all these wonderful women by sending all 160 nominees a Gardener’s Idea Book, a Proven Winners slidechart, and a Mother-of-the-Year certificate.
