Today is Resi's birthday. If she were still alive, she would be 107 years old. Resi (Therese) lived up the street from us. She was my Aunt Theresa's best friend. She was like a grandmother to my brothers and me.
Here she is with my two kids about 20 years ago.
When my brothers and I were little, every Monday night my mother would invite some of her sisters and neighborhood ladies over for "Crochet Club." Resi was one of those ladies. She was an excellent seamstress and she loved to crochet. She liked to crochet tops on towels that could then be hung from the stove handle. She helped me learn how to crochet.
Happy Birthday Resi!
