Evelena was 92 when she passed away. Only recently my sister found these pictures of her. My mother passed away about 4 years ago. She was an avid genealogist but for all of her hunting she failed to share the pictures closest to us. I think her quest led her to her own past and she didn't give much thought to the people she knew, that maybe we didn't.
I wonder what she would be thinking about life today and if she would think the days gone by were "the good ole days"? I think they were pretty hard. My Mother-in-law always said "there was nothing good about the old days". That young woman with the umbrella looks like she doesn't have a worry and the elderly lady at the bottom looks like she has been through a lot.
Today, my sister is called Mimi by her 2 grandchildren. One of them is Evely. I think the first Mimi would have liked that.
