This is another picture that I got off our Family Tree Website (Geni.com)
It needed a little restoration, as it had a big crack and scuffs.
Once that was done, I was amazed at the beauty of this!
Here's the story. My mom's sister died very young from cancer, the newspaper obituary says an illness of 2 months.
She was only 24 years old, and left a husband and 11 month old daughter.
But the truly amazing thing was her musical talent.
(My mom's family was very talented musically … unfortunately; it didn't filter down to me!)
It said my aunt appeared in Broadway shows (1953), was a member of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra and played with the NBC Symphony Orchestra and Fred Waring's Orchestra and on various other TV shows. She also recorded an album with “The Three Sons” and appeared in a movie “Men of Music”, a documentary on the New York Philharmonic. She had gone to the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia and studied harp under Carlos Salzedo, world-famous harpist. She was a highly-regarded musician.
And she was ONLY 24 years old. Her obituary is dated 3-17-1954. She died in Lynbrook, NY.
How sad …. No “…so tragic”.
Sorry about the glary spot in the middle, and the wonky angle.
The letters look a little funky as I painted them white and they got a little thick.
