75 Years Ago Today
October 3, 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 Tuesday, October 3:
Birthday note: Jean Kupka
Up at 6:30. Pete helping Bud put up beans. Did dishes, separator. Gave Billy a bath. Scrubbed dining room and swept bed rooms. Pete home at 5:45. Chored, bathed & went to Star to Club party. Stayed 'till 10:30. Home to bed.
Not hard to see where I learned to take a bath/shower every day… Started at day one! ;-)
Went to Star Church for a Club party. Do you suppose the new minister was there, as well?
Here is what the rural church looked like then:
Families are Forever! ;-)
