Tribute to Mum

If my mother, Ruth, were still alive, she would have turned 90 today. Sadly, she passed in 2004, just shy of 85.

Here are some pictures from her life - enjoy!

Here she is at 10 months old, taken in 1920. This was found while working on cleaning out the house.

I believe this is the photo taken upon her graduation from secretarial school. Mum gave me this picture of herself a long time ago. She seemed so serious!

This is both of my parents, in my front yard, sometime prior to 1990. I believe it was taken by my sister.

And here is "Ruthie" at her 80th birthday party. Finally enjoying herself!
Peace to all, Judi

Beautiful tribute to your "Mum." Mine just turned 80 this year. I don't know what I'd do without her. Hugs.

Thank you one and all, Mum would be so pleased for all of your well-wishes I'm sure. She was quite a lady!

That second photo is one of my favorites of her, serious or not she looks so beautiful. The one in your front yard I think was actually taken by me, it was on the night of my Junior Prom, I have the exact same photo and I was into getting doubles of everything back then. Just a guess. Great shots & a super nice tribute to Gram :-)
