A Centenarian – A life well lived!

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.

91 Years Young!

On the fourth of July we headed to Ohio to celebrate Bernie Feehan’s 91st birthday! What a blessing to have so many family members to join us! There were his children, all but four of the grandchildren, some great grandchildren and even some great-great grandchildren! It was so very hot, but the kids were so thankful for Aunt Debbie’s pool. There were many family members who met each other for the first time. It was a memorable event having so many come to honor their father, grandfather and great-grandfather! It was a hot day as was the day of his birth. He has told the story that it was so very hot that his mother just wanted to go for a ride. So his father hitched up the horses and they went for a ride on the wagon. It was later that evening that my FIL was born. Many images were taken … to commemorate the event.

Greenville Family

Such a providentially appointed site for a family photo shoot!  It is the oldest bridge in South Carolina…said to be haunted!  It was a perfect setting for an extended family shoot.  Such gorgeousness!  We don’t get to see our Greenville family very often and those little guys keep getting bigger and bigger.  I have to capture pictures every time I have an opportunity!  There are a few from our walk to River Walk as well.  It has been so long, everybody was sure ready….well, almost everybody! LOL  Enjoy the pics!
