My aunt Dorothy. She was married to Charlie Latham. They did not have any children.


During her 20's she worked as a stenographer at a wholesale grain company. I know she owned and operated a candy store later in life. She use to give me plastic candy pieces that had been display items in her store. For some reason she collected the perfume bottles after she used the contents, and what a joy for a little girl to go to her house and play with all her "pretties".
