Poetic Interlude LXIX

Ladies of the Obituaries, January 27

A proud Teamster,

A pioneer’s daughter,

Married a Major

One month, and one day.

Alma and Irma and Edna and Cleo

Slipped from this earthly life.

Survived by a husband,

A brother,

Her children;

Preceded in death;

Widowed again.

Born, in Olympia, Nineteen Fifteen.

Two world wars,

Three strokes, and twelve presidents,

In lieu of a service,

The eldest of eight.

Exhibited strength at Medosweet Dairy:

Cherished.
