Memories from daughter Donna

Hoboes had our house marked! We lived 1 block from big 4 RR and mom’s apple pie was notorious. She never refused them as they came with hat in hand. Both mother and dad ran Reichards Grocerx. (The spelling “GROCERX” was intentional, perhaps it means Grocer-RX, a grocery and pharmacy). Mom was prone to giving candy for buttons. Dad would say “Effie, you’re teaching the children to cheat!” She was too kind and always caring.

Mom took in laundry to support us during the depression. She had 5-6 customers, washing and ironing, picking up and delivering for $2 a basket. She played piano.
