Lately it has been a funeral every week. Last night we attended Irene’s visitation, the funeral will be today. Irene was 94 years old and married to Jim for 72 years. Jim was there at the visitation, he knew who Far Guy was but had to be reminded of my name…then he said “How could I have forgotten your name?”
I got to thinking about all the women in the area north and west of me and it seems only fitting to at least mention them.
Women still living will be in red.
Hazel Y., Margaret, Violet, Grace Y., Rose G., Rose P., Eunice, Shirley, Emily, Margie, Alice, Hilma, Grace L., Edie, Leah, Meady, Joanie, Dora, Irene, Hazel S., Hazel E., Ruby, Mary Ann, Jeanie, Betty, Etla, Mary M., Madeline, Barbara, Lorraine, Karin, Lucille, Pat, Trisha, Ella, Minnie, Gertie, Vi, Ashley, Mary H.,Tammy, JoLynn, Arvilla, Kay, Erna, Mary Lou, Connie, Cindy and Melissa.
This winter/spring was tough on the gals. Vi, Hazel E, Mary H. and Irene have died since the first of the year.
Two Roses, Two Graces, Three Hazels, Four Marys if you count the Ann and the Lou. Our numbers are dwindling.
