Am I halachically Jewish?

Hello r/Judaism,

I’ve been raised Jewish my entire life. I had a Bar Mitzvah, went to a (somewhat secular) Hebrew day school, and have considered myself Jewish for as long as I can remember. 7 of my 8 grandparents were 100% Ashkenazi halachic Jews, and says I’m slightly more than 87% Ashki. However, my mom’s maternal grandmother (my great-grandmother) was not Jewish. Am I not halachically Jewish because of this?

Other info: my paternal grandfather had an Orthodox Bar Mitzvah, and my maternal grandfather (also had a Bar Mitzvah) is the son of German Jews who escaped in 1936.

Thanks for any advice people can offer.
