We were so happy that our family from Greenville came to visit us this past summer. Right before the big surgery! The cousins had such a great time together — playing, running and playing in the creek! They have not seen and played with each other much before! It was a short but fun time visiting Wildwood and Lake Tobias together. They had a quick trip to Hershey to engage in candy! Took a few minutes to shoot some pictures since it had been a year almost! They grew so much….these sweet boys!
Mary Alice, born in 1921, was the oldest of three. After graduation, she attended Lancaster Bible School. She was married in 1941 and had one daughter. This remarkable woman has always been very musically inclined. She played the piano and directed choirs at several churches, played the organ and played the violin. She has taught Sunday School and led Pioneer Girls for many years. All the while she was an Executive Secretary to the Actuary at PA Blue Shield. Along with her husband, Mary hunted, fished and boated, and in fact, shot her own deer!!
Mary Alice was an accomplished seamstress, made coats, gown and all her own clothes and her daughter’s. She knitted, crocheted, embroidered, and quilted. She did all sorts of crafts.
She has two grandchildren and four great grandchildren. They are pictured here in honor of her hundredth birthday. What a enjoyable photo shoot this was. Having been long-time friends with Chuck and Joy (her daughter) along with the Shugharts, made this so much fun to be part of.
It has been some time since I posted to this site, until recently. Word Press has changed things again…I got a new computer (PC) instead of my Apple and have been reticent to work with it posting pictures and such. With Covid going around, I have not been able to take the Grandchildren pictures that I usually do, every summer. We haven’t seen our kiddos living in the south since Christmas for various reasons. Well, life goes on, and so must we. A month or so ago I took pictures of our local Yocals! LOL They grew so much in the few months on not seeing them…getting older and growing older looking with every passing week. I have been amazed at how much they changed in just a couple of months of not seeing them. The Grandchildren are so much easier to capture these days, now that we have the olders…not babies. Though we surely do miss having little rug rats around. It is nice that I don’t have to chase them down to capture their sweet faces, and they know the picture drill, having had my camera in their faces since birth! Here are the yearly pictures of Owen Feehan – 10, Cormac Feehan – 8 and Padraig Feehan -6 I know you would agree…they are some handsome Dudes!
