Cathy is Uncle Marvin's daughter, my grandpa Alfred's little brother. letter dated May 5, 2019
On Wednesday I got Maxine (Axsom) Bradberry a vase and beautiful bouquet of flowers and , upon arriving at her assisted living residence, asked the receptionist, "is Miss Bradberry in the dining room or upstairs in her apartment?" I thought I would have lunch with her. The receptionist looked surprised: "Oh, I am so sorry - but Ms. Maxine passed away last week."....I am assuming Maxine was the eldest of all of us - at least on Daisy and Cora's branches. Her son, Bill, has been the one to take care of his family, including financial responsibilities, like selling Susan's house. First Jimmy Axsom, 70ish, died. he was living with Susan. Then Susan passed unexpectedly. Last year Madge passed on at age 94. and now his mom, who just turned 96 in February. Bill is retired, so he visits Sharon every week to make sure she is ok and has groceries. she never learned to drive. Roy and Barbara Rilling's grandson Patrick and his wife Roxanne just announced that they are expecting first baby in the fall. Debbie lives in St. Louis. Justin and wife Miriah are moving to Sacramento area this month. Cathy Ann (Aunt Vi's daughter) is a Great Grandma. Suede is 3 months old. (Tucson, AZ).
