Happy birthday, Mums!

Today - 26 July - is my maternal grandmother's birthday.
She was born Mary Rose Welsh in 1911 to Martin and Catharine O'Flaherty Walsh in Phoenixville, Chester County, PA. She told me once they changed from Walsh to Welsh because there were some other Walshes in Phoenixville but they were trouble and her family did not want to be associated with them! The photo above shows her with my grandfather (obviously her husband) Lloyd Pierson Still. The photo was taken in Unionville, specifically in Uncle Tom's kitchen. It was their anniversary but I do forget which one. She passed away on 20 May 1989. She would be 102 today!
