|Mother, in 1944 the year I was born. She was 18 when I was born but turned 19 when I was 3 weeks old|
Mother would be 94 years old and celebrating her 76th Wedding Anniversary today. She turned 18 on the day she was married on Sept 22, 1943. I was born Sept 5th, 1944.
(as a small child I caused much grief by telling people I was born on Sept 5th and Mother got married on Sept 22, seems I never said the year when telling this true fact)
Mother left behind a 4 drawer dresser full of Styrofoam egg cartons and each carton had 12 pairs of earbobs just like these. She had one whole carton of them made from tiny shells. She collected shells. The dresser had literally HUNDREDS of earbobs. She never got rid of a single pair, not even broken ones.
