Visiting Aunt Meda


On Monday, September 30, 1957, taking a day off work, Dale was in Osceola and wrote, “Bought five dozen eggs from Lloyd.  Got my hair cut for $1 at John Devore’s barber shop in Osceola.  Mother and I went to see Aunt Meda, she has cancer.  Drove from Osceola to Minneapolis in 6 hours, 300 miles.  Home at 6:40.  Beautiful day.”  Aunt Meda was Ida Almeda Robins, the wife of Dale’s uncle Charlie Gardner.  She died a week later.  Above: their wedding picture from 1907.
