Sepia Saturday 130–Two Love Birds

Sepia Saturday provides an opportunity for genealogy bloggers to share their family history through photographs.

Sepia Saturday June 16, 2012

Whether saying hello or saying goodbye, it looks like love was in the air in today's Sepia Saturday photo prompt.  Likewise, the two love birds pictured in the photo below were very much in love as well.  In fact, they were so much in love, they got married.

Debs  And Sarah

This is a photo of my maternal grandparents, Debs Warren Webster and Sarah Vasques Madeira.  They were married in 1936 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.  Sadly, Sarah passed away July 14, 1942, just a short six years after they were married.

    1. Yes, it was very sad indeed. My mom was just a little girl at the time of her death.

  2. Wow -- look at her palazzo pants. I knew when you posted that portrait of her in her hat that she was one stylish woman. She has a bit of a Katherine Hepburn mystique.

  3. Nice picture of your grandparents - how sad that your grandmother died while your mother was so young. Interesting gate behind them, do you know where the picture was taken?

    1. Hi Nancy! Thanks for stopping by! In answer to your question, yes, I will be posting about her death. Thanks for the idea. I actually am in possession of her death certificate. It's from Brazil and is written in Portuguese, so I will ask my mom (who is also from Brazil and speaks Portuguese) to translate it for me. I will try to post this tomorrow if I can. Thanks for your comments! I appreciate it!
