1962-63 right after my parents were married, Edward Dryer.

This is my Dad. He and Josie were very loveing and warm people. In any photo of my Dad you can see he will have his arms around my Mom or anyone he loved. Point a camera at him and his eyes would light up. He was 91 and 9 months when he died in 1993. Married 29 Sep 1921

Right: Lonnie is in a white shirt . No dates on either photo. My Dad was rather quite about his siblings. He was the oldest and felt he should have taken care of them better. Mom said she didn't know much about Lonnie or Velma. They were quite and "a little stand offish". Dad must have got all the talkative and friendly personality. I have been referred to as having Dad mouth. ;-)
Sue.......Now, I would like to introduce you to your ancestors.
My parents: Jesse E. Dryer and
Lelia Dell Dryer b. 29 Sep 1901
Barton CO., MO d. 4 Jan 1980 Bencia, CA
Sibling -Velma left home young. Came home in 1939 for
her mother's funeral and never heard from again. She even left the funeral early and didn't go to the house afterwards like it was expected to do then or that was what everyone thought until they checked her mother's jewelry and a few other items.
The Dryer Girls.... as we were named by those in Missouri.
This was in 1989 when the 3 of us went back to Missouri for my oldest sister's (middle) 50th school reunion. Genieve was a class behind but the country school was so small everyone knew each other and besides, most were cousins in some matter. That is me on the right. I was born 14 years after Genieve and had left Missouri for CA when I was 3 yrs. old. I had not been back to Missouri since I was 8 years old. Kinda eerie when everyone knew you and you don't know who you are talking to. We did genealogy research on this trip and had a ball. Lot of fun. Us 3 girls had never been anywhere together before, besides family gatherings. I was born 17 Jun 1938 Lamar, MO.
