Who Was...?

Recently, we have reconnected with one of Richard's 1st cousins on his Mother's side.  I went to a 50th anniversary event for Richard's cousin Betty and her husband Bradley Chrisman.  That just started it.  Those special events often yield unexpected treasures. Maybe it is a nudge of the ancestors. 

Anyway, Richard's cousin is wanting to know more about Edna Bell Collier Kirkpatrick, who would have been their Grandmother.  Wouldn't it be neat to have a little gathering focusing on "Who was ...?"  People could bring pictures, stories, hand work, who knows what to make meaning of someone who came before.  I'd like that.

Just who was Edna Bell Collier Kirkpatrick?  The following picture shows her with her husband Isaac William Kirkpatrick.  This picture is assumed to have been taken in the late 1960s.  She passed in 1970 and he passed in 1972. Not much is known about them.  I wonder what stories they would have to tell...
