Here's an homage to Mom in pictures ...
|Mom. Probably about 3 or 4 years old.|
|Uncle Keith, Aunt Rosie & Mom. On the back porch steps.|
|About 11 years old (4th grade).|
|Dad (Everett Schooley) and Mom (Nina Lee) in high school. She's 16 and he's 17.|
|The original "Friends" ... dad & mom snuggled down in the back seat together (Dad's hangin' out wearing work shoes, white socks and rolled up dungarees).|
|On the back of picture it says "My boy-friend off and on in high school. Then I ended up marrying the guy! Ha!"|
|Mom with me, just home from the hospital.|
|Skipping several years, Nancy, Mom, Dawn & Madeleine.|
|Mom with her brothers Roger & Keith and sister Rosie.|
|Mom and Dad with all their grands (at the time).|
|At their 50th wedding anniversary.|
|Just a few short years ago at the Lee Reunion with Gloria.|
|Happy in her cozy apartment at River Terrace. This is how I'll try to remember her. That smile.|
1918 - 2016 ... She worked a whole lot of living into that dash.
