  • Notes 
    • A great woman who loved her children dearly and suffered long from lack of returned love and from arthuritis and rheumatism. Her last years were made comfortable by her son Elmer, who though single and running a drug store, took her in and succored her till her death. He was and is a good man and christian. He took care of mother freely and without thought of his own welfare,when none other would have done so, and I personally commend him for his actions and concern. Were it not for his forthrightness she would have come to nought, although her life itself was a long process of worry and depression, .... Many were the nights that I spent with her at home, in my youth, while others were out enjoying their existance in various pursuits, I spent much of my youth playing games with her or just talking or listening to the radio as she rocked herself in her old rocking chair. I remember few of our conversations but frequently see her in my minds eye as she sat, a weary and disfigured body crippled with rheumatism and arthritis, who patiently and persistently toiled each day to feed and keep her family, without the aid of a husband, who, had he lived would have just added more sorrow to an already heavy heart. How difficult it is to love someone when you don't really know any love in return.Her marriage to dad must have had some good parts, which I know it had, but nearly all the wonders and harmonies of my early days are about and involve, my mother.
