Eileen KINNICK - 75 yrs ago - Week 25 - June 19-25, 1937

75 yrs ago
Week 25 - June 19-25, 1937

My mother, Eileen KINNICK (maiden name), kept a diary from 1932 until her death in 1999. In Feb 2005, I created a website of her 1936 diary, the year she graduated from high school. During the latter half of 2011, commented weekly on these entries.
For 1937, I am transcribing the daily entries, currently, at The KINNICK Project surname blog.

In this weekly blog post, I will make summary comments and observations, and perhaps add a photo, from time to time. Starting here with Week 10, I am switching to the week ending on Friday.
Setting: The family lived in a farmhouse a couple of miles out of town (Coon Rapids, Iowa). Older brother, Leo, lived at home; his girl friend, later wife, Ida, visited regularly. Younger brother, Buzzy (she often wrote Bussy) was 9 years old. Pete Smith is her 'boy friend' - fourth month starting Jan 1 (they do marry, in Mar 1938).

Week 25 (June 19-25): From the Coon Rapids Enterprise of June 21, 2012, page 4

75 Years Ago column dated June 11, 1937:

"At a ceremony beautiful in its simplicity Miss Lucille Textor and Wilson Pingrey were married before members of their immediate families and a few close friends at the home of the bride’s parents Sunday afternoon. The Rev. O.E. Cooley of the local Methodist Episcopal church read the marriage lines promptly at 2 o’clock. Mrs. Wayne Textor, a sister of the bridegroom was matron of honor, and Wayne Textor, a brother of the bride, attended the bridegroom. Mrs. Pingrey is the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Textor."

The Textor family celebrated this wedding and then celebrated an anniversary a couple of weeks later.

I look forward to your comments!

Families are Forever!  ;-)
