In social sciences, little attention has been paid to the role and functions of grandmothers in the family, and still less, to their role as legators and transmitters of values. Do older women have the impression they are transmitting or have transmitted something to succeeding generations? If so, what do they believe they are transmitting or have transmitted to their children and grandchildren? What legacies do they think it is important to leave for the next generation? How do they want to be remembered? These are the questions the authors answer in this article, based on a qualitative research of 25 in-depth interviews conducted with three generations of older women (65-74, 75-84, and 85 and older) from Quebec.
