Isn’t this portrait lovely? Beth is my GrandAunt. She is the sister of my Grandma, Mary Margaret Ellis. This photo wasn’t dated so I can’t be certain, but doesn’t it look like an engagement photo? Darwin and Beth were married in 1938.
I generally don’t say much about living people, but today is a day worth mentioning for these two. Darwin turns 100 today! Aunt Beth passed away in 2011 at the age of 91. That is 73 years of marriage!! They have a wonderful posterity of 53.
This photo comes from the second page of the album. Here are pages two and three to give context for this photo:
