My mother

Katherine, John L, Mary Leonore, Goerge Homer, Labrue 1919
 My mother was the baby of the family. Pictured here at one and a half with two of her older brothers and one of her sisters. (missing are Olivia and Arthur) The family lived in Kansas. My mother was the only one of the children to be born there.

In a age when other little girls were having their hair bobbed, her father was from the "old country" and didn't want to have her hair cut. It was deep auburn and hung in big, soft, ringlets.
Her mother dressed her in only white until she started school, at the age of six.

 After she was in school, she finally got her bob and was so happy. She was nicknamed "Kitty" by her father, and called that all her life.

She was an adorable baby and a beautiful lady. Mothers were so special than, I hope we are special when we're, old or gonne to our children, just like our mothers are to us. Have a great MOTHER'S DAY.

My mother's family photos look so much like these. My mom was a bit older than your, though. Thank you for sharing parts of your mother's life with us. She was beautiful.
