4 Generations of Women

The first woman on the right is my great-grandmother, Olive Ellen Martin Alexander who was called 'Ollie' by her friends, Grandma-mom by my mother and I. Next to her my grandma, Della Alexander Jaynes, then my mother and the smallest woman in the group is me. The photo was taken in the late 1950's at my house. It's the only photo with all of us together that I know of. Grandma-mom died in 1972 and my grandma in 1996.

A Women's History Month post.
