Grandma worked as a telephone operator in Birch Hills until 1940 when she married Tom Allen, and moved to a homestead in Lone Spruce. She had a daughter, Gwen, and a son, Gary, five grandchildren, eight great grandchildren and one great great grandchild. Grandma was very proud of her family and loved spending time with us.
