Now living in Osceola on Thursday, January 30, 1969, Dale wrote, “About 16° above, windy, cloudy. Very, very icy. Visited at Keith’s a little while in the afternoon. Marie here a minute. Supper at Pleasant’s, saw Emil and Ruth and their son there.” Keith Schaffer was a nephew of Helen’s, Marie was Dale’s sister; Pleasant’s was a restaurant. Emil Rinderspacher would be the soloist at Helen’s funeral in 1996, singing Amazing Grace and Whispering Hope. His wife, Ruth LaFollette, was the granddaughter of Jonathon Norville Williams; she and Dale had the same great-grandfather, Jonathon Smith Williams. Dale’s father, Williams Gardner, was named after Nancy Ellen Williams, a daughter of Jonathon Smith Williams.
