This is my mothers sister my AUNT JOANN...with her husband Chris, they raised 2 wonderful children.
Kenneth (Butch) Jensen (ALASKA)
and SHIRLEY (Florida)and my 1/2 sister Betty (Illinois).I always enjoyed visiting her ....
What a wonderful cook and baker.
Here is one of her recipes...we had fun making together...in the early 40,s.
AWWWW HAPPY MEMORIES!
I feel they are all looking down at me, and are remembering This Thanksgiving Day...
I am very thankful they were in my life. Nancy...11/22/12
