A Pictoral Tribute to Mom

She was born on this day in 1917.

Here she is at about 6 months.

At two, she was already fearless.

At about five. Pictures of Erva and me at this age look so much like her it's spooky.

At about 13. Already an avid reader.

At about 14. Barefoot and riding a donkey.

At 15 or 16. Strong like bull...she could row for miles.

As a high school senior, beautiful, and...

heading off to Pratt Institute.

On her wedding day. Age 26.

Here she is a young married woman.

With her daughters.

In the prime of her life, enjoying every minute.

Today she is 92.
Happy Birthday Mom. We love you.


  1. What a beautiful pictorial of your mother, Bish! I enjoyed seeing her at different ages (my favorite is her with the book). It looks like she is living a long life to the fullest!

  2. Lovely, lovely tribute. You and Erva are so lucky to have such a wonderful Mom. Happy Birthday to her.

  3. Wow -- beautiful post, Bish!

    Happy Birthday to your mother!

  4. Happy Birthday to you mom!
    Great pictures. I always think those family resemblances are fascinating and a little spooky.

  5. Once again, these are really lovely pictures, and this is a fine tribute. My favorite is the book photograph too: there is something about a child absorbed in a book that is especially endearing.

  6. This is just gorgeous. The book picture is stunning -- what a truly lovely tribute!
