This is a day late, but it can count for everyday. My mother was very elusive - she dodged photography like crazy. I truly have very few pics of her and she's been gone over twenty years. But her common sense echoes in my brain. This is her birthplace in Greentown, IN. Humble beginnings and she stayed humble her whole life.
Somber young girl who never belonged on a farm.
She was ahead of her time. I remember her always urging me to travel, go to school, don't marry (too soon). She was a feminist before Gloria and Betty fought the good fight.
