Mollie in 1900

mary obitReceived an email from the Wyoming State Archives today. One of the items was an obituary for my grandmother, Mary (Mollie) Elizabeth Ison Croy. While I’m not one to get all “supernatural” about things, I’ll admit to being taken aback. Why? Because I received it exactly 50 years after her death, July 29, 1965! (fade in…Twilight Zone theme song) I remember sitting in her down stairs apartment at my aunt’s house in Rock Springs, Wyoming, playing with her parakeet and talking about times long gone. Her only granddaughter, we connected. Perhaps more than I thought.
