My Aunt and her love, Felix, left home early in life (Wisconsin to California to Oregon). Her wedding picture at 17 years of age is on display next to her wedding gown.
My Aunt led the way, leaving the abusive homestead. They ventured toward opportunity. My mom left home behind her, running away in the night to Chicago, then to California and following to Oregon. Teenagers finding their way West in the 1930’s and 40’s.
