Remembering Mimi

Angela's grandma passed away/passed on/passed over last week, and she and I were talking about her life. Mimi was 104, and had not been herself for several years. But look at how beautiful she was on her wedding day. Really, the haircut is so chic that it belongs in a fashion magazine today. And grandpa was handsome too. Love his bowtie.

Angela says: The names are Alfred DeWayne and Una Juanita (Baxter) Booth (1908-1912). I just verified they were married April 3, 1926 in St. Joseph, MO. My grandfather passed away in 1970 at 63 years old. So even at that time they had been married for 44 years. That is the only photo that we know of that was taken on their wedding day.

So here's to Mimi and her fashion-stylin' self!

Wow! Mimi was a "looker" for her day! That wedding pic could have been taken today! Warm thoughts for Mimi, Angela, and her family!
