This is a start of a series on my mom for the mini-carnival series Bound for Mom hosted by geneabloggers.
The first posting is about firsts -- date, first love, first home, first child, and more. Take all of these beginnings and bundle them up into a story of how your Mom got started.
First date -- ?
First love -- ? I don't know if she ever dated someone other than my dad who she met in 1939.
She never got to filling in the section of a book Sweet Memories : a Woman's journal that might have given me the answers to these questions.
First home -- a cement 2 storey on the Manitoulin. As a married person - They lived for a short time, as I recall from what she told me, in an apartment in a house on 8th Street East in Owen Sound. They then moved to the apartment above their corner grocery store also on 8th Street East. We didn't move into a "real house" until 1958.
First job - After high school, while waiting to get a job as a legal stenographer, she went to Toronto to do housekeeping. She wasn't there long when W. P. Telford, Sr. tracked her down to work in his law office in Owen Sound.
Well, my sister, Nancy was the first child in the family, born one year and two months after mom and dad married.
More on my mom next week for this series.
