75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - May 29, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
May 29, 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 Monday, May 29:

Mom did the washing. I made a batch of jell & a gold cake in the morning. Ate dinner. Took Pete over on 80 & went in and ironed. Louise and 4 kids were there.
Over after Pete at 5:00. Home, chores early. Little lamb died. Ate & went out & weeded the potatoes. Folks came & we sat on the porch & talked until 10:00. To bed.

My comments:

Good opportunity to share this photo of Rasmus and Louise and their family, from a few years later. Judy wasn't yet born, but the others around Louise would be the four: Annie, Winona, Marie and Darrell.

Rasmus and older sons, Howard and Karl are in the back. I assume Paul was in the service when this was taken. Howard was, as well, but home on leave, as I recall other photos from this day.
[Louise was a sister of Dorothy, Eileen's mother, of course. Rasmus and Louise lived along the Raccoon River, south of Bayard, in Guthrie County]

Families are Forever!  ;-)
