Today would have been my Mother's 98th birthday. She was born in 1923 in Horndean, Hants, near Portsmouth in the south of England.
|Mum, as a young woman, my sister, Marlene, and I|
She married my Dad, Perry Weismiller in Horndean on 7 July 1945. I came along almost exactly two years later in 1947.
She had my sister, Marlene on 31 July 1952, and ten days later on 10 August, Dad died. Her parents lived with us so she could work until she remarried on 1 January 1957. She married Marion Spiller, a farmer, so I spent my formative years on the farm.
She is gone but never forgotten. Rest eternal grant unto her, O Lord, and let light perpetual shine upon her. May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed rest in peace. Memory Eternal!
