Mom as coed

Wanda Myrtle "Wanda" Casebolt was born to Nanie Grace (Burden) and Baldwin Harl Casebolt 19 June 1913 at the family farm in the Round Mound Communiity near Cedar Vale, Chautauqua County, KS. She was the youngest daughter who survived and, by all accounts, was the apple of her father's eye. The feeling evidently was mutual. Upon hearing that her father had been murdered, she went into shock and woke up the next morning, only 13 years of age, with snow-white hair and so it remained for her next 73 years! It was absolutely gorgeous but she was embarrassed by it. So for most of her life she wore it dyed or heavily tinted. Most weeks of her life she had a hairdresser's appointment. During my teenage years it was easy to almost believe that my mom had blue hair!

Mom spent one year at Pittsburg (Ks) State College in teacher training, after which she received her lifetime teaching certificate, and so could go to work. The snapshot here was taken by one of her roommates. Three or four gals had rented a room with bath in a Pittsburg home. Mom told me it was a very good year!

With severe alzheimers mom died 4 March 2000 in the Hyannis Hospital having previously lived in a in Centerville, Barnstable County, Massachusetts nursing home especially for patients with various forms of dementia).
