75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - October 3, 1939


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
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.

My comments:

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!  ;-)
