June’s Own Thoughts
I was born in Madison, SD in 1927 during the dust bowl time. I grew up with great fun loving parents instilling good morals and values in their 4 children.
We were poor, but I never knew we were because we raised cattle, hogs, chickens and had a large garden. My parents shared food with many unfortunate relatives and friends and were always willing and ready to help anyone who needed help.
Friends of Mother would say that her right hand never knew what her left hand was doing.
I feel that because of their teaching and living by example, I am the person I am today!
