On Saturday, March 9, 1957, Dale and Dalene were in Owatonna, Minnesota, on their way from Minneapolis to Osceola where Helen was visiting her sister Wilma after Wilma’s surgery. Dale wrote, “Up at 6 and on to Osceola by 7. Arrived at 1 p.m., no trouble. Saw Wilma. Took Helen to the hospital and took Lela to Louie’s. Back to Mother’s by 9 p.m. Saw Marie’s pictures at Mother’s. Nice day.” Lela was the other sister to Helen and Wilma, Louie was one of their brothers, and Marie was Dale’s sister.
