Shirley recently sent me two photos from her wedding to Richard Cook which took place June 13, 1959. I am sharing them because they’re a couple of the last photos I have seen that include Grandmother Gina.
This first photo is of Gina and daughter Clara, the mother of the bridegroom, at the reception. At the time, Gina would have been one month short of 79 years, and Clara 54 years.
The second photo is a three-generation snapshot: Gina, Clara, and bridegroom Richard. Gina lived a year and a half more, to December 10, 1960, so many of us grandchildren missed having her at our own wedding. I think Emil had died before any of us grandchildren were married. Thanks, Shirley, for sharing the photos!
