111 Birthday

This is my mom. She was born in 1904 on February 7th in Halstead, KS. After high school, she went to nurse's training at Dr. Hertzler's hospital in her home town. She was a terrific nurse who could give painless shots. She always wore a fancy handkerchief in her uniform pocket and proudly wore her nurse cap with the black strip, signifying a registered nurse. In these photos she was nineteen as a Registered Nurse graduate and forty-nine in the second for their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary in 1953. It's been 50 years last October since she died at only sixty years old. I miss her.


  1. She looks like a very nice lady/nurse. She died young I am sorry for your loss:(
