Notes for Evelyn Mary MacMillan:
Mom was poorly educated, but very intelligent.She was generally cheerful and positive.She was a terrible cook, but a wonderful mother. She was a strict disciplanarian... much more feared than my father, but she would hold us and rock us often.She was sensitive and easily brought to tears by a separation.She readily showed emotion, but was never hysterical.Aside from a tendency to look at the next card while we were playing 500rhummy, she had no vices.She loved music and the radio was commonly on during the day...... country music.Often in the evenings we would have Amatuer Hours where we would all compete in singing....... we all wanted to sing "Blueberry Hill" since that was Mom's favorite.Mom believed strongly in education and skrimped to help us while we were attending school.Mom was a serious church goer and would drag us to the 6:30 AM mass every Sunday, Summer and Winter.It was a two mile walk in the cold and dark, but on the way home we'd stop at the bakery and pick up some CrumbBuns......Umm.Mom made most of our clothes and was an accomplished seamstress.When Pop quit his job with the Sanitation Dept.she got various jobs in clothing factories ....... which bothered Pop because he didn't believe a woman should go out to work.The times were hard, and I suppose we were poor, but we didn't know it and were always clean, fed, and loved.
