75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Mar 22, 1939



75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Mar 22, 1939


This entry is a post from the diary of my mother, twenty year old Eileen KINNICK, 75 Years Ago this date. She kept a diary from 1932 as a freshman in high school until she left us, too early, in 1999.


Here is the daily entry for Wednesday, Mar 22:


 Pete up at 6:00. He went to work up home. Cleaned the house a little bit. Norma, Ruth, Gertrude, Cletus, Dora here to practice. Left at 4:30. Pete home at 5:00. Made choc. cookies while Pete chores. Cleaned up and went to Gertrude's & Victor's to S. S. meeting. LVene, Verle, Arnold, Julia, Don, Norma, Ruth, Glenn, Gertrude, Vic, Orley Browns there. Organized class, played cards and checkers & had lunch. Home at 1:00.

My comment:

This was the "young married couples" Sunday School Class at Star Methodist Church. They continued to hold these monthly meetings, in the evening, in different couples' homes for many years… long after they were "young marrieds!" Ruth and Glenn my future in-laws, of course. Ruth was pregnant with Nancy, just as Mom was pregnant with me… 33 days behind! ;-)

And, chocolate chip cookies…



Families are Forever!  ;-)
