This is Dessie, named after my maternal grandma, whose name was either Dessie Charlie, or Charlie Dessie; however she was called Charlie.
Grandma, at age 17; I couldn't find her date of birth, but she and Grandpa were married in 1906.
I don't remember much about Grandma, but this is the way I do remember her. We didn't visit with them much; my sister has told me that Grandma didn't like our Daddy, which must have been troubling to Mama. In 1952 Grandma had cancer and during her last days her children took turns staying with her at home. I do remember going with Mama one week and being kept awake most of the nights by a clock that chimed every fifteen minutes. Grandma died in August of 1952.
