Adolph and Helen Brutke
Here, as promised, are a few photos from my past. Well, my mother's past, to be exact. The picture above is from an album she recently loaned to me, and I'm scanning the photos into my computer. It takes a long time but is so worth it! I'm not sure of a date on this photo. Some of the photos aren't labeled.
I love this one of my mom! Isn't she so cute? Her family lived on a farm in the Eola hills of Amity Oregon. Originally her parents and both sets of grandparents immigrated from Rovno, Russia in 1910. They lived in Texas for a while, working to pay off their ship fare, and then relocated in Oregon. I'm working on a historical web page about them, and I'm hoping this new blog writing will inspire me to finish it!
The photos were taken outside because they didn't have a flash on their camera. Her mom made the cake. She was a good cook. My mom's birthday is July 15, 1933.
