75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - October 1, 1939


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
October 1, 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 Sunday, October 1:

Anniversary note: Lyle & Wilma married '38

Up at 6:30. Fried chicken, bathed Billy etc. & went to ch. & S.S. Stayed for coop dinner afterwards. Krenmyres were there. Home at 3:00. In to the folks. Don & Joyce, Leo & Ida were there. Home & cleaned the house a little. Pete chores. Ate, folks came out awhile after milk on the way to Rasmuses to get Buzzy. [She had written Bussy… added lines below the ss to look like zz!!]

My comments:

Big day at Star Church. Krenmyre was the new preacher of Methodist church in Coon Rapids and Star Churches - effective September 19 (he was there for two years).

Must have taken the Fried Chicken to the Coop Dinner! Yum! ;-)


Families are Forever!  ;-)
