This seems like the grandmother is a bit overdressed for a grueling car trip when she is stuck between two children. The Grandmother dresses so formally because she wants paramedics and other individuals to know that she was a lady if they had a terrible car accident with her family. This is especially awful because she doesn’t even seem to worry about her own family in a car crash, just herself.

People paying for someone else’s mistakes isn’t good. Her being manipulative and selfish cost her life and her whole families lives.

The letter would have been sufficient, but considering it probably landed in Don Crane’s hands last, her message would not have been received in a positive eye-opening way. This terrible mishap had been a result of her own sloppiness. If only I had waited until the next day! Strangeworth decided it was time to stop looking back on her mistake.
She never wanted to do what she was told by people she didn 't fully respect. She puts up the fight of her life to Aunt Alexandera because she does not want to become a lady.

Then with Ginny acting like nothing was wrong, because she buried the memories away for good, Rose thought it was okay to just act like it was okay. Rose even admits that she didn’t think it was bad, because Larry said so and made her feel special compared to her sisters. After growing up, after knowing that was wrong and disgusting, the stress that must put on Ginny and Rose may have been soul crushing. Rose even deprived herself from seeing her daughters everyday and caring for them to keep them away from her father and his wicked ways. So yes, as far as we know, Ginny and Rose were more justified in their actions than Goneril and
