Merl and Pauline (Smith) Bower - married 1 Jun 1935.
[Pauline is my Dad's older sister.]
I don't know if this is a wedding photo, or later.
They will appear in Eileen's 75 Years Ago diary in Week 52, on a Christmas Sunday (Jan 3 post).
They obviously live out of town (not Coon Rapids, IA).
I suddenly realized I don't really know very much about their early years, before the had their two daughters, before the moved to California. And, I've forgotten, or can't find, when they moved west.
Their daughters were born in 1941 and 1945.
Hope some cousins will answer some of these questions! Thanks!
Families are Forever! ;-)
