75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - April 28, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
April 28, 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 Friday, April 28:

Did usual work. Kinda chilly in morning. Warmed up after dinner. Rita here from 1:00 till 2:00. Scrubbed kitchen floor. Read and embroidered all pm. Out & raked garden awhile. Had tomato soup for supper. Took our baths & went to bed.

My comments:

Here is a good photo of Grant and Rita (Moylan) Ballard - probably mid-1940s. He died in 1949 at age 49. She lived nearly 40 years longer. I remember her visiting, from time to time.

Families are Forever!  ;-)
