Random Relative of the Week ~ Jan 25, 2009




Olive Isabelle DUNCAN QUICK

Born October 15, 1910 ~ Louisville, Colorado

Died April 24, 1995
~ Hamilton, Ohio

Ollie Belle as she was known, or just Belle in later life, was my Grandmother. While she is technically my Mother's step-mother, she and my Grandpa Quick were married when my Mom was only 3 so Belle is the only one I knew as "Grandma Quick".

I recently was able to scan a copy of this great picture of my Mom and Grandma on a horse. Please note the open-toed, high-heeled shoes Grandma is wearing! Hopefully they were only posing for the camera, and not going on a trail ride.

  1. What a delightful picture. They are so happy--it's wonderful to have a grandma like that, Diana!

  2. It must have been a bit difficult to get up on that horse in those shoes! What a great picture of both your grandmother and your mother. I love the name of the prompt...Random Relative...do you mind if I use that sometime? Thanks for sharing!

  3. Hi ~ thanks for the comments.

    As for the "Random Relatives" thing - please feel free! If you read my very first post you can see where that came from. I would love it if others used it as well :-)
