Today is my mother’s birthday. She died about 18 months ago.
Below are the notes she put about herself in the GEDCOM for her genealogy:
Frances May SPENCER was born on 12 Jun 1926 in Jackson, Hinds, Mississippi. She was christened in Aug 1926 in Ridgeland, Madison, Mississippi, Episcopal.
The subject graduated from Central High School and attended Draughn’s Business college for a year. She worked at Deposit Guaranty Bank a year before her marriage. After marrage she moved to Atlanta and worked at First National Bank for 18 Months while putting hubby through Georgia Tech. After 6 months off to ave their first child she worked on the campus as a secretary in the electronics Lab. We lived a year in Jackson, MS and then moved to Gulfport, MS or nine months. Our next home was to be Huntsville, AL where her husband went to work at Redstone Arsenal for the Space Team. The next two decades were very exciting as J.T. participated in the space program. The name changed from Redstone Arsenal to ABMA and finally to NASA. I attended The University of AL in Huntsville between babies. We like to “camp” (pulling a motel room behind the car) in the mountains. I am active at church and in the local genealogical society as well as the Computer in Genealogy group.
(Note: She died on 8 Jan 2007 in Huntsville, Madison, Alabama. The cause of death was Diabetes and Alzheimer s. She was buried on 10 Jan 2007 in St. Thomas Episcopal Church Columbarium Huntsville, Madison, Alabama. )
