She is posing with her Uncle George's airdale pup in this photo. She is in grade school here.
Here she is as one happy bride, on her honeymoon along the Oregon Coast.
Four years later, she had her first baby, me. And four years after that my brother Joe was born. Susie never worked outside the home. She took care of her family and extended family all her life, and worked hard.

I wanted to honor her life today, and wish her a Happy Birthday.
Susie Erskine Vernon, January 15, 1927-January 5, 2000.
