Nan and Charlie and Family

Another long ago picture - 1952 - with Nan and Charlie and their three children. Jo is on the left, Carol on the right, and Uncle Bud holding Sherry, the first grandchild, next to our mom. This was taken in the little house we lived in right across the road from the Illinois River. It had been a summer cottage at one time. There was a glassed in porch all along the front of it and what a great place to sit and watch the boats go up and down the river. Living by the water is wonderful - wish I had a lake right by my house now! A fireplace in the living room had one end of the mantle cut off - I think someone at one time had put in a partition to make a small bedroom and then later it was taken out. (Click to enlarge)
