ADD A MEMORY
Martha McCallum Kuper

I am Karen Beck DeHaan.s first cousin. My aunt Bessie and my dad Norman Daniel McCallum were brother and sister. I loved going to Seattle to visit Aunt Bessie and Uncle John when they lived in a houseboat on Portage Bay Place. I loved visiting with my second cousins Judy and Joy when they came to St Helens to visit my parents. My mother died in 1949 and I never heard of Judy and Joy again. I think the last time I saw Judy and Joy was in 1947. I tried to find them over the last several years, but never had any luck with the search. I am so sorry that Judy and Joy are gone. I would have loved to have seen them. Martha Jane McCallum Kuper
