Wow!!! Monday March 15 2010 was the 100th birthday of Elizabeth Priscilla Brandson (nee Layng), Larry's mother, and my mother-in-law. It's hard to imagine, and the more I say 'one hundred years', the harder it is to believe.
The family gathered on Sunday, the day before, for a celebration. Four generations of family, and a few friends, came to visit and have some birthday cake.
'Bessie', as she was fondly known, as a baby. She was born in the rural municipality of North Cypress, in south central Manitoba, March 15 1910
With her four sons, 1951
Peace Portal Lodge 2010, White Rock.
(Well technically on the Surrey side of 16th Ave, but since she had lived in White Rock for the previous 46 years, that's how we'll leave it)
