Mabel Louis Ruff Glover Birth Anniversary
My aunt, Mabel Louise Ruff Glover, would have been 101 years old today. Aunt Mabel was one of my favorite aunts. She was married to my dad's half-brother, Frances’s "Hank" Glover.
I have a lot of fond memories of my Aunt Mabel. We would visit Aunt Mabel and Uncle Hank when they lived in Ferndale, Michigan and later Troy, Michigan. My uncle worked for General Motors, and they lived in South Africa and Brazil for a while.
The picture to the left was taken on Easter, 1962, at Uncle Hank's and Aunt Mabel's home in Ferndale. Uncle Hank, Aunt Mabel, and their son, Stu, are behind my mom, and Grandma Bell. My sister Linda and my self are in front. I'm the short one.
