February 22,2014 Quilt Presentation

I went to Lakewood to present a quilt to Ruth Gardia. Three of her four children were there along with her next door neighbor Ray and his daughter, Marilyn who helped set this up through Lakewood City Hall. Ruth was a WW11 Army nurse who told a couple of fun tales about her nursing career, including how they tried to keep the mumps patients in bed by hiding the young men’s pajama bottoms. She was also an original home purchaser In Lakewood and still lives in the same house. They also told tales of the neighborhood kids and their antics.
