I had a call from Nancy (Jacobberger) Coyne yesterday who used to faithfully send cookies to Erin on holidays. Nancy had read the Mother’s Day blog and was amazed to find out that her mother was 2 days older than Mom, and that her parents were married 2 days before Mom and Dad. We talked further and found out that our fathers were both born in March of 1900. Her father was 2 weeks older than Dad.
We were both reminded of this picture of Mom and Dad and the Jacobbergers as chaperones for a Newman Club semi-formal dance held at the Montclair Women’s Club on Dec. 4, 1953. That would have been the fall of my sophomore year.
Do you think that any colleges have chaperones these days?
