My great grandmother Emma with my maternal grandmother Clara. This photo was taken around 1897.
Granny lost her mother when she was just two years old and lost her father at eight years old.
At fifteen years old Granny worked in a bakery. She was either trained well in the art of baking or it came naturally to her. I believe she must have baked loaves of bread, cakes, rolls and pies every day of her life with the exception of when she was having children.
She was one of the most loving women I have ever known. If I am half the grandmother that she was, I will have done well.
I have some friends who want to share their photos with you today. Stop by their blogs and say "Hello".
