Viola May “Mam” Young
It would just not seem right to close a discussion of this family, without mentioning Viola May Young Simpson. Most called her Ola, her granddaughter Marylea calls her Mam, which is how I have affectionately come to know her. Marylea and I have had many conversations about the boxes of “stuff” she inherited from Mam, old postcards, newspaper clippings, pictures, and other family keepsakes. Without Mam’s “stuff” we would not have a lot of the information and pictures we now have.
Mam THANK YOU!!!!!!
