My Mother

by: Jean Gutzman Wallace

May seems to be the most appropriate month to add this page to my site as it was a most eventful month in Mom's life.  She was born on the 19th, Mothers day the second Sunday, I was born on the 3rd and she died on the 27th.  

It is here that I would like to begin the telling of my mothers story.  It's not an easy thing to do as she lived so much of her life before I came into the picture.  But, what I can tell is what I know and hopefully there will be others to help me fill in the gaps.
