“Tell me, what is it you plan to do/ with your one wild and precious life?” (Mary Oliver)

(mostly) wordless wednesday, July 1915

July 13, 2016

Bertha Mohr and John Resch were married 101 years ago yesterday, on July 12, 1915, in Pine City Minnesota. They were married for over 50 years and had eleven children; my father was the third eldest. They also had 44 grandchildren and many great-grandchildren., who are now producing their great-great-grandchildren! My grandmother was a stunning beauty, but what I remember–and miss the most–was the warmth of her smile. She was and is my inspiration.

  1. What a lovely photo to have of your grandmother and grandfather…a keepsake for sure.

    1. Yes, I really love this photo…it’s the only photo I have of her as a young woman. I never knew my grandfather, who died before I was born, but I adored my grandmother.
