Mom’s Life
When Mom was a little girl they didn’t have very much, and she was one of 11 children. Christmas time did not bring a lot of gifts. Looking back on her childhood, she told us, she couldn’t understand why Santa Claus gave new toys to other kids, but brought them broken crayons.
Mom resembled her father and for that reason he was especially fond of her. One Christmas he showed up (I guess they didn’t get to see him very often) and he went to her and handed her a bag of candy. She looked at it, and quickly handed it right back to him and said “I don’t want this, daddy - take it back and bring us back something to eat. We need food.”
When mom was about 12 or 14, her mother sent her off to work in another city for a boarding house. She made biscuits and breakfast in the morning, then she made beds and cleaned rooms, emptied chamber pots, and mopped floors also. I don’t know if she got to keep the money or had to send it back to her mom to feed the smaller kids. When she was 17 or 18 she left Vermont with one of her brothers, (maybe uncle Ray?) and went to New York.
She married a man from Beacon, NY and had three daughters. When her husband left her a young widow, she fell in love with another wonderful man who made her a princess. He loved her dearly, and was very kind and gentle to her. Just about anything she wanted she got! They had a good life together & were very dedicated to each other. She would often have her new nieces & nephews come stay with them for a week or so-she always lived kids! Everyone of her grandchildren and great grandchildren were precious to her. I know she would’ve liked to have seen them more often.
She was big hearted, and many times she opened her wallet to people she met or knew that were less fortunate than her. Once that backfired though, when someone she helped out called A certain well/known Department/Catalog store, changed her credit card address and started having merchandise delivered to their home on mom‘s credit. She did not appreciate that at all!

She had a lot of talents - she loved gardening, she loved crafts and sewing. She made many outfits for us girls when we were growing up. I still remember one Easter morning walking to church & each of us girls had on a brand new hand made dress with matching overcoat to wear to church Easter Sunday! Her love for her three girls was always prominent.
She was also very talented at home renovations whether it be wallpapering, painting, refinishing the hardwood floor or working with Gene gutting and remodeling Apartments to rent.
Gene & mom always went to Florida In winter, so they bought a home & spent many balmy winters there.
Sadly though, our beloved Gene became ill, and left her.
She spent her remaining (almost) 10 years with her 2nd daughter, enjoying and playing with her great grandchildren as their numbers grew!
