On Sunday, June 17, 1951, Dale and his family drove from Muscatine to Gerald Shaffer’s home in Latimer, Iowa, stopping at the Amana Colonies for lunch, arriving at Gerald’s at 2:00. Dale wrote, “Genes there too. Stanley went home with Bobby. Helen, Dalene and I got home at 10 p.m.” Above: Muscatine to Latimer. Gerald was Helen’s brother. Lela (Helen’s sister) and Gene Yates, daughter Nancy and son Bob lived in Perry, Iowa, at the time. Five days later, Gene and Lela drove me to Osceola, where I stayed with my grandmother Jettie until Dale, Helen, and Dalene arrived about a week later.
