(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 228: Gerry, Ed and Ruth in 1982

 I am posting photographs from my family collections for (Not So) Wordless Wednesday (you know me, I can't go wordless!).

Here is a photograph from the Geraldine (Seaver) Remley family collection handed down from my Aunt Gerry in 2007 after her passing. 

I actually took this picture in 1982 (and sent it to Aunt Gerry) of three of the four living (at that time) siblings of my father.  The persons in this picture are:

*  Geraldine (Seaver) Remley (1917-2007)
*  Edward R. Seaver (1913-2004)
*  Ruth W. (Seaver) Fischer (1907-2000)

The picture was taken at the home of Edward and Janet (Roukes) Seaver in Leominster on Helena Street.  We stayed with Ed and Janet on this visit and had a wonderful time exploring Leominster, seeing family, and talking about family.  This visit sparked my interest in genealogy.  

At the time, Gerry and her husband lived in Florida (winter) and Maine (summer).  Ruth and her husband Bowers lived in Leominster, but soon moved to Florida.  Ed and Janet moved to Arizona within several years.  

All three of these siblings of my father had fond memories of him (he died in 1983), and shared them with me in personal letters, audio tapes, and shared time together.
