Jean Adema's 86th birthday

Today would be my grandma's 86th birthday, but unfortunately she passed away a few years ago. She was born on 22 October 1925 in Edgerton, Pipestone County, Minnesota. Her parents were Simon and Grace (van Hofwegen) Adema. She would later marry Bernard Koops. This picture was taken of her around 1926 I would guess.

    May you keep sharing your ancestor stories!

  2. I love the picture of the child with the ball. I have one of my mother like that taken in Newark NJ. Must have been a popular pose.
