|Lucille Overby McCall 1925-1990|
Today my Mother would have been 90 years old. On Sept 22, 1925, Mother was born here in Palmetto, Florida and loved all things beach and water. She married Daddy in 1943 at age 18 and moved to Savannah, GA and never stopped missing her home town. She caught fish and crabs and dug clams in this river for 18 years.
Above is the manatee river that splits Palmetto and Bradenton, the red dot at top is the house where she was born, the lower red dot is our home. Bradenton beach is to the far left. Mother loved all things beach/water. Clicking will enlarge map.
Above is the green bridge mother fished from, below is the new Green bridge she never saw.
