Wedding Anniversary
“Mr. and Mrs. Erick Eklund were pleasantly surprised at their home in the Norrie location last evening, by a group of friends.  The occasion was their twenty fifth wedding anniversary.  At 10:30 o’clock refreshments were served to about 30 guests.  Mr. and Mrs. Eklund were the recipients of several beautiful gifts.”

This is the obituary of my Great-Grandmother who sent my mother all those postcards in 1959.  She died June 6, 1971 at the age of 79.  The three great-grandchildren mentioned in the obituary are my three brothers.
