Looking through my pictures, trying to find a match for the people, who made grandma Maryann's first Christmas, so special. The gifts they gave were thoughtful and nice, and tho she was too small to remember, no doubt grandma had a wonderful day.
So in memory of her very first Christmas 1924, I give you, some of the people who made it so special.
These are the Zimmerman sisters, all but Alicia, who died young.
I couldn't help using this picture, even tho it is when Matie was a baby, instead of grandma Maryann. This was taken in Edgar, Wisconsin, where they were all from, before they came out West. I just love this picture! Look at all of their wonderful hats! Doesn't it just make you want to smile?!
Third was Aunt Agnes "Inez" L. Zimmerman-Kress, pictured above. b.1870
Fourth was, Aunt Alicia Elizabeth Zimmerman b.1871 but died young
Youngest of the Zimmerman sisters was, Margeretha "Madge" "Tata" Bridgett Zimmerman-Gorman b.1878
These are the Aunts, who loved grandma dearly, and who figured very largely in her life. I only wish that there had been pictures, of he actual Christmas, but sadly I have none, to share. Of all the pictures in the collection, sadly, Christmas', and Thanksgiving's, are not recorded. However, I am thankful, that these pictures have survived, so that I may share them with you.
MERRY CHRISTMAS ONE AND ALL!
