Wavie was Atlanta's first full time schoolteacher.
Married in a double ceremony with Wavie's cousin Nellie Crutchley and Robert Harkreader on 08 Jun 1926 in Eureka,IL.
She loved the color lavender, light purple. She was always impeccably dressed, in slack suits, matching earrings, necklace even if it was to go get the mail. She never learned how to drive. She slept in satin pajamas. She had her hair done once a week. I remember her telephone service was on a partyline. She grew strawberries in the backyard. She lived next door to the funeral home. She loved Lawrence Welk. She never went out without a hankie.
