Wordless Wednesday: Bertha Virginia Lemmonds

This stoic young redhead was my grandmother, Bertha Virginia Lemmonds Lambert, as a teenager.
She was born September 8, 1915 and passed away on December 20, 1988. She was married to Burley Eugene Lambert and had two sons Melvin Eugene Lambert and Leon Dickson Lambert and one daughter, Mildred Olene Lambert Misenheimer.

Her red hair came to her from her father, Harvey Lafayette Lemmonds, even though she never met him, and was born 3 months after his death, to his widow, Lottie Hill Lemmonds.

I think she was beautiful.

Her father, Harvey L Lemmonds as a boy.
