This update is for friends of my family in the Southern California area.
The Memorial Service for my mom will be Wednesday, July 15 at 11:00. It will be held at the First United Methodist Church of Huntington Beach, with a luncheon following the service in the Fellowship Hall. If you are coming, let me know so we can be sure to have enough food. We would love to have you remember mom with us.
We choose the picture in the announcement because it wonderfully captures the beauty of my mom. The joyful heart and warmth that we all knew is evident in the smile on her face. We are not sure what year this portrait was done, but do believe it might be from her single years while working as an operator for Bell Telephone.
Thanks to everyone who has written notes of encouragement to my family. We appreciate every one.
