75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - April 9, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
April 9, 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 Sunday, April 9:

I got up at 6:30. Did last night's dishes. Got ready for church. Mrs. Riis here trying to sell Jehovah
Witness Materials.
46 at Sunday School. 23 in our class. Polly & Merle came down home a minute.
In to folks to dinner. Leo, Ida, Lil, Del there. They went to Louise's awhile so Pete & I rode around and then came home. Folks and Leo's out home for supper. They left at 6:00. With Pete doing chores. Did dishes while he milked. Polly, Merle, Betty, Irene here until 10:00. Rode in to take Irene. home at 10:30.

My comments:

They must have been exhausted… I see six separate activities in addition to work around the farm!

Changing up the images, here are Leo and Ida on their 50th Wedding Anniversary, in 1987, in Tucson, with their four children, from left, Kathleen, Karen, Karla, Kelton.

Families are Forever!  ;-)
