To Wauneta Breeze Staff:
I was born in Wauneta July 27, 1923, Virginia “Tootsie” Tharen, my doctor was Dalley.
My dear friend, Lesa Mukes from Georgia, had White Thumb send me flour and cereal for my 91st birthday. Then a lady by the name of Ruth at the library referred her to the Wauneta Breeze and received the paper of 125 years — What a thrill!
I sat at that soda fountain many times. My sister, Bernice, worked for Mr. Berry. My sister, Charlotte, worked for the Bradleys at the telephone company.
I remember Jake Wade, Jimmie Johnston, Mrs. Frasler, Pete Athey, Hoffs Grocery Store, Carpenter Meat Market, Harvey’s Feed Lot, Rider’s movie house and d’Allemand Bakery.
Yes, my dad was in carpentry, thought he built many things in Wauneta.
Loved my childhood. This brought back many wonderful memories.
All the best, much success.
