Mom and unknow lady at clothesline

This website is also dedicated to my mother, Mrs. Dahl (Bea), who was the home’s chief laundress from 1948-1958.  Mom passed away in Tulsa, Oklahoma on July 6th, 2007 - four days after her 99th birthday.  Mom lived a very fulfilled, happy and healthy life. She got her driver’s license at 60 years of age and loved “her cars and the independence that driving gave her”.  Her sense of humor is greatly missed.  (That’s mom on the right in the photo, please click to enlarge).
