From 1929 Wedding Dress to 1971 Animal Print Jumpsuit
Grandma Dorothy (Dorothy May Sndyer) was married on July 14, 1929 to Maurice "Pat" Lane. When I came across this photo last night, it made me smile. Grandma was just getting ready to start married life, and it was fun to think about her being a new bride.
I also smiled because I realized just how much my niece Jeni looks like Grandma Dorothy. Now I have been inspecting all of the all photos to see if I can see my son in any of the ancestors!
While she had heart problems at the end of her life, most of my memories are of Grandma being active and independent - that's why I included a picture of her in my brother's go-cart. The go-cart picture also shows a major fashion change! Imagine that - an animal print jumpsuit, with ankle length nylons. Awesome!
