My first love. Physically a tiny woman 4'11", dark brown hair, fair skin and complexion and the lightest blue eyes one could have. A total mother, wife, nurse, friend, confidant, buddy, and arbitrator. Everything she did was for her family and woe to the person who was critical about her sons.

In 1929 she worked as a Clerk for Wisconsin Creamery Co. in St. Louis, then moved off to Chemist and Lab. Assistant at Quality Dairy, St. Louis, Mo. Several years after her marriage she moved on to Working at concession stands at Kiel Auditorium, St. Louis House and other large auditoriums finally when dad moved on to manage the Gambrinus Hall she took on being a Waitress and Bartender.

Early on she had decided that my brother and I would go to college even if she had to scrub floors to earn the money.

May brother and I sort of filled her dreams when we both graduated from St. Louis University with B.S degrees in Aeronautics and then later when we received our Master's degrees and her two sons retired from the U.S Air Force as Lt/Col's.
