Here is my Mother's 1943 Senior Yearbook
That year it was not a hardback cover
it was WWII
It was the "lab school" at EIU
in other words
a place for Teachers in training to learn.
It was a private school and my Dad went to the
public HS across town.
My Mom is in the 2nd to bottom row on the rt
So your thinking.....typical year book
this page brings me to tears
remember it is WWII
Hope you can read it,
my Dad proposed.
"just my luck for you to meet some handsome
4F man and get married, but I hope not for
I would not mind to have that honor"
Love, Kenny Winkler
