I know, I know you all are just waiting on pins and needles for the next installment of my great-grandmother & grandmother’s memory book….SO, here it is!
Through out this memory book my great-grandmother and grandmother not only wrote about the death of friends, neighbors and relatives they also cut out newspaper clippings about various happenings. Today’s postings shows an obituary that was between two pages of the memory book.
The obituary from an unknown paper reads exactly:
“Young Woman Passes
