In her wedding dress in 1930 we can see our Dad, Bill, never stood a chance after that fateful blind date.
Dad grew up in Oklahoma, a country boy thru and thru. Mom had to train him in city ways. She did make 2 trips to his home place near Lawton. The second journey was in 1932 as his wife.
The young couple survived the Great Depression, Mom graduating from Teachers College and Dad from Law School. They eventually settled in Arlington Va. To start a family. They also assumed care of J.’s sister Edith’s child Marlean.
Marlean and Mother Bunch are seen on the right and Mom, pregnant with our brother Neal, is wearing a stylish maternity dress. Neal sadly lived only 1 day when born.
