Thank-You Mother For Everything

Thelma Irene Klemish Pittman ~ Wedding ~ January 6, 1946 ~ age 18 ~ Majestic Art Studio, Amarillo, Texas

Thelma Irene Klemish came to Texas from Iowa in the mid 1940's. 
Now what's a Iowa FarmGal doing coming to Texas?

Here's how her Texas Story begins....

Love At First Sight...It Happened In Texas

Thelma Klemish Weds Texas Man

That was big news in Mama's hometown of Brayton, Iowa.
You see, Iowa FarmGals didn't just up and go to Texas.
But that's what she and her best friend Phyllis did after graduating from High School. 

My Mama is a Saver of Cards, Letters and Photos. 
Over the years she has saved Mothers Day Cards from her children.

This beautiful card from my Sister Connie was and still is perfect for our beautiful Mother.
