Happy 90th Birthday, MOM!

Today would have been my mom's 90th birthday....she was born on October 2, 1918...
Here she is in a funky flea market purple hat!!! (i need to say that she really hated to have her picture taken in later years..she most times looked away...so this one is special!!


(OKAY..NOW...SOME OF THESE PICS ARE SOOO TINY...HOW THE HECK DO I EXPECT YOU TO SEE THEM...?...JUST CLICK ON THE PIC AND THEY GET B-I-G!!!)

here she is at her first communion...



here she is with her best friend from highschool...


here she is in her theatre group...front row way to the left



here she is with her slovak dance group...back row third from the left



she ALWAYS HAD TO HAVE HER BLACK COFFEE...



and here she is in the hospital...right after she found out she had breast cancer...



She passed away on June 14, 2005..

MISS YOU MOM...

HUGZ TO YOU ALL
