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

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
May 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 Sunday, May 28:

 Cloudy in morning. Fixed ice cream & salad. Did chores, went to S.S. & church. Home & were going to freeze ice cr. but Leo & Dad were here & had it all fixed. Was I mad. in town. Got ready to go to Springbrook.
52 Williams were there - Ate, boys went swimming. Leo W. had Pete's coat. Home, chored, cleaned up. Went in to "Ice Follies '39" Really was good. Talked to Arnold, Julia & Edith & came home.

My comments:

Williams was Mom's paternal grandmother. This group had gotten together for years, and it continued as Kinnick-Williams picnic into the 1950s. Mom grandma, Nettie Williams had only died three years earlier. These were her children, grand-children, and great-grandchildren. Her married name was Kinnick, of course. [Leo W. was Leo Williams, a nephew of Nettie]

Movie featured Joan Crawford and Jimmy Stewart - couldn't help but be good!!  ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
