School days

This is a photo of a school class around 1938 in Leon Kansas. The girl Betty, third from left, front row and boy Darrol, far end at right in the front row, next to his twin brother, Harold, were married in 1947 and are parents of my wife, born in 1949. The twins were born in 1927 and are to this day alive, active and well. Betty, her mother is also still alive, soon celebrating their sixtieth anniversary. They now reside in Wichita, Kansas.

Very good

Amazingly high quality for a group shot from that long ago!


I am sad to inform everyone that Betty just recently passed away, May 15, 2007, she was 79. She and Darrol would have celebrated their 60th anniversary in July of this year.

She was my mother-in-law, a sweet wonderful lady, she will be missed by family and friends. I think most of us who knew her well will miss her humor, she was a very funny lady.

Amazing! :)

Amazing! :)

Class photo.
