Today’s Full Circle began with Iggy searching..he found an email address for a relative.
Photo Number 839 Rose Gast
The back of of the photo said To Ellfrieda
Hingot. edited to (Hingst) from Rose Gast
My wife forwarded this email to me. I showed the photo to my father, Rose's last living child and he agreed that it is his mother. He thinks it is likely her confirmation photo and she may have been about age 14. Also he said that he knew the Hingst family as a child, someone may have had trouble reading the writing on the postcard. It is not Hingot as indicated in the blog.
I mailed the photo off in the mail on April 9, 2012 and last night I got a reply.
Hi Connie, I received the photo today in fine shape. I have attached a photo of my Grandmother taken in 1995 when she was 94. She lived another 3 years however her mind didn't stick with her. What I remember about her is she was very quiet, she always made her own bread, never buying it at the store. And she made great canned cherries. I only got to see her every 2 or 3 years while growing up since our family moved out west.
I have also attached the program from her memorial which is informative.
Thanks for taking the time to research the photo, it was a fun experience.
Another Full Circle this one complete with an older photo..thanks to Craig for sharing the photo and the Obituary with us!
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
