A Wonderful Life

Thanks JOHNNYYUMA for that wonderful peek into a WONDERFUL LIFE.

Just think of all the lives touched by this wonderful young lady.

Strange fact is that my wife was a teacher (3rd grade) for almost the same amount of time as this young lady was soon to be.

Shorpy does it again, my eyes are getting a little wet around the edges.

And now we care.

What an adorable corn-fed little cherub.

And I want her watch!

The Rest of the Story

Thanks for linking us to the other 75 years of her useful, adventurous, and beautiful life. God rest her soul.

14 and a half years old

That's how young this woman is. I wonder about that mark on her left elbow: today it would be a tattoo (I see a friendly crocodile), but it must be a smudge (see right forearm). Happy holidays, fellow Shorpy followers, plus special gratitude of the season to Dave and tterrace for providing this great online resource.

Rest in Peace

Lived a nice life.
