This is my first post for Family Fridays. Thanks to Kimberly at Terra Del Sole who visited my blog a few weeks ago when I was posting on St. Pats day about my Great Grandfather Patrick Fletcher. She invited me to take part in Family Fridays with Lori @ the Peterson Family since I enjoy family history.
My first post is showcasing my Mom, Nellie Louise. Born November 8, 1926, being the oldest of 5 children. She was born in Fairfax,
Oklahoma. My Mom and her family lived in Tulare California, graduated from High School there and then moved to Norwood, Missouri where she met my father Ralph. My first picture is of her and her sister Ruby , Mom is the older one holding her sister Ruby's hand.
This is one of Mom and one of her friends taken outside a soda shop in Tulare California. Someone put that arrow on Mom, not me.
This is a picture of Mom and Dad taken on their farm around 1947
After I was born in Nov. 1947, my Mom helped Dad take care of his elderly parents, after they passed away they moved from the farm and moved to Kansas City where my Dad went to electrican school.
My Mother was a stay at home Mom while we were all in school, she didn't work outside the home until the 1970's. She is a very talented seamstress and made all of our clothes. She made the dresses in this pic.
My Mom was always a servant - gladly- taking care of everyone. One of my sisters in handicapped and my Mom has been her constant companion for her entire life. This is the thing I admire her for the most.
My Dad worked his whole life and then had cancer and died at 69. My Mom took care of him constantly She is now 83 and has met a "friend", here's their pic at Christmas.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
