I sent the photo. But I have no idea if it arrived safely.
I will declare it a Full Circle anyway.
Bessie Dean Photo Number 2163
Thanks for stopping by.
I heard from Alice today December 25 2018
Thank you so much for the picture of my Grandmother, Bessie Mae Dean Hansens. I will send you something to cover the cost of the postage soon.
As for information regarding my grandmother's life:
She was born September12, 1881 and died in October of 1971 (i can't remember the specific date - it was either the 9th or the 16th). She married Henry Hansens in 1914 or 1915 at age 33. She had 4 sons - Elton J. Hansens, Curtis Hansens, Lester Eugene Hansens, and Melvin Henry Hansens. Her youngest son, Melvin, died in WWII. She had 11 grandchildren - Mary Jane, Melvin William, Katheran Louise, Victor Eugene, Helen Mae, Alice Ruth, Phillip Lee (children of Lester), Linda Yvonne, Glen Curtis, John Elton, and Helen Aline (children of Curtis).
For a woman who married for the first time at age 33, that she had 4 children and lived to see 11 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren was remarkable.
