I re-did my membership with the Rutherford B Hayes library, www.rbhayes.org, recently, as I had found some interesting ‘stuff’ on their website, and I really like having access to the www.newspaperarchive.com site and also Heritage Quest, and that is included with the membership I have at that level.
Today, I was searching NewspaperArchive.com website for my uncle, Frank Stocking, and found a copy of my Aunt Peggy’s from the Hutchinson News digitized on the NewspaperArchive.com website. And it never would have occurred to me to look at the Hutchinson News microfilms!! Eureka! I wasn’t doing genealogy when my lovely Aunt Peggy passed away, and so I had not saved it!
It was such a shock when Aunt Peggy died. We knew she had a heart condition, but still, it was a shock. My daughter had been born three weeks before, and we were all looking forward to visiting with Peggy’s brother and his wife when they came to visit in a few weeks, but that wasn’t to be.
I was still off work on maternity leave when we traveled to the funeral, and I took my 2 1/2 year old son and three-week-old daughter with Mom and I to her service.
Aunt Peggy was a ‘hoot.’ She also had a beautiful smile, a heart of gold, and an infectious laugh! She was always cracking jokes, and I miss her.
