I had shared the following photos of my grandparents on Facebook, and decided to share them on my blog too.
So, in honor of National Grandparents Day, here are some photos of my grandparents.
I love this photo of my paternal grandparents Arthur Harry Iverson and Ingrid Anna Gillberg before they were married. The photo is attached to a page from one of my Grandma Ingrid's Books of Remembrance.
Thank you Grandma Ingrid for including a description of this photograph! This is what Grandma Ingrid wrote underneath the photo:
I'm not sure why she spelled Arthur's middle name as Hary. It's actually Harry. And she spelled her last name as Gilberg. Over the course of time, I've seen her last name spelled Gilberg, Gillberg, and even Gilbert in documents.Arthur Hary Iverson and myself Ingrid Anna GilbergTaken before we were married. A time exposure.1930
I also love that Ingrid wrote "A time exposure" under the photo. I wonder how long Arthur and Ingrid had to sit still while their photo was taken.
This next photo shows my maternal grandparents Debs Warren Webster and his first wife Sarah Vasques Madeira. They were both born in Brazil and that's where this photo was taken.
Sadly, Sarah passed away in 1942 when my mom was a little girl.
Debs married his second wife, Willis Quillin, in 1944.
This is a photo of Debs and Willis with me as a baby. My Grandpa Debs and Grandma Willis were very loving and kind. I miss them.
I never knew my maternal grandmother Sarah Vasques Madeira or my paternal grandfather Arthur Harry Iverson. Arthur passed away when my father was a small boy.
I love my grandparents, including the grandparents I never knew in this life.
Thanks for reading!
