About Shirley Rickard
Grandma Shirley is what I, Kathleen Elick called her.
Marjorie Elick called her Mother Shirley.
I remember meeting her when I was four. I was suppose to be her and Grandpa Rickard's Flower Girl, but we got to Arizona too late! They were already married by the time we got there!
When we came back from the jungle on furlough, I was 10. We went to visit Grandpa and Grandma Shirley. I remember they had a beautiful cuckoo clock that even showed the weather!:)
The next time I saw her, mother and I went to visit her in Escondido. She had cut her waist long gray hair, but kept it in a pretty box. I was 17 and had just come back from the jungle!
Grandma Shirley lived well into her 90's! She had lovely pictures of Grandpa Rickard when he was young! We asked about them, but nobody knew about pictures after she died!
