A Mom for All Times - We Miss You Every Day, Mom.......

A tribute in pictures to our dear mother for a life well-lived and a great example to us all.  Thank you.....

 Our mother, Dorothy, as a baby with her mom, in Montana, 1924. Most of these pictures were taken by her father, George, over the years. He loved to take pictures.

With her older brother, Gidge, in Spokane, 1925. Gidge survived polio at an early age and lived a long life. He was a favorite uncle.

Playing with her younger brother, Don, in the fountain on Moran Prairie. Don was killed in WWII.

As a school girl, in the 30's.

On a snowbank in Glacier Park about 1935; photo tinted by her dad, the shutterbug of the family.

Feeding chipmunks at Glacier Park.

With her first cousins, Mel and Pete, younger brother Don, and their grandmother, Elpha Steele, in Spokane during the 1930's.

  1. Just a lovely pictorial of your Mother, Kathie! I enjoyed each and every photo!
    Take Care!

    1. Hi Candace: Thank you. She was a really nice person and a great mom. The photos mean more to us every passing year. Hey, I loved your guest poster on your site. I've got to go over there and say so, though. What a guy!

  2. What a fantastic tribute to your Mom and what a beautiful lady. It's so wonderful that you have so many of the old pictures and thank you for sharing them and telling us about your Mom. Hugs!!

    1. Yo Tammy - Thank you. We're glad to have the pictures, especially now that she's been gone for a bit of time. We miss her! Especially on Mother's Day. Glad you came by. Hugs back.....
