75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - July 26, 1939


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
July 26, 1939


This entry is a post from the diary of my mother, twenty year old Eileen KINNICK SMITH, 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, July 26:

Pete threshing at Laurensen's & Herron's. Washed my hair. In town to dinner. Clyde & Delma's came. Home at 4:00 & cleaned my house a little. Pete came at 7:00. Chored & all the folks came out for a few minutes & then went down to Rasmuses. Cleaned up & went in to town until 11:00. Home to bed.

My comments:

Delma was another sister of Dorothy, Eileen's Mom. Clyde and Delma were uncle and aunt. They lived up near Sioux City… eventually went to California for rest of they lives.

Here are the three Sorensen sisters, within a few years of this date:

Louise, Dorothy, Delma


Families are Forever!  ;-)
