She was a small town girl with big dreams. My mother-in-law, Vivian loved shopping and glamour. She loved make-up and high heels.One day she and her college friend decided to go to town and get their photo taken. Here is her glamour shot. This portrait hung on the wall near her husband's side of the bed their whole married life. When she was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease the picture hung in my home for awhile.
After Vivian married she worked as a school teacher for several years. She taught business and home economics classes for about ten years. They began to have children and moved out west to run a dairy farm. Her life was not so glamorous during the farming days. She had to milk cows twice a day. I hope to find a picture of her with the cows to show you soon. In later years, she went back to substitute teaching, and enjoyed the lipstick and fancy clothes again. The Lord gave her a daughter, daughter-in-law, and three granddaughters to dress up and go shopping with. I love my mother-in-law. I am thankful she still remembers us right now.
