An Email dated October 2006 FOLLOWING LETTER BY JANET REDDEN A NIECE OF ERVIN (TUCK) BLANEY.


If I remember right I thought she was raised by her grandparents, because I know she was 6 when her mother passed away and I thought there were only 5 to 6 children at that time. When her mother died all the kids were given up.

She was almost 18 when her aunt wanted to bring her to Illinois - this would have been the first time for her off the farm. Matter of fact my sister Peg moved into a farm house that her husband and her rented that was about 3 miles from where aunt Goldie was raised and we thought someday we would take her back - even though there is nothing left, but never did. Anyway her Grandmother was not going to let Goldie go, unless the aunt found someone to do her chores, while Goldie would be away. Thank goodness the aunt found someone and Aunt Goldie was able to go - than she met my uncle and the rest is history.

They lived in the same town I was raised and Tuck, Art and my father Red were very close as brothers. Tuck worked at USI which is a chemical plant in Tuscola and made really good money and Aunt Goldie was a cook for the ABL schools - she was the best cook ever. She cooked at the grade school that I went to and felt comfortable in school because I knew she was there. She was always so kind and I don't ever hearing raise her voice or even being mad.
