Joanne on the left with her younger sister and her Mom (Laverne). Taken in Wyandotte County (Kansas City), Kansas. Laverne was married at the start of the War (yes - that war), and worked in a factory in Kansas City making crystals for communication devices such as radios for the war. Joanne grew up very much like her Mom - her sister was not quite the same way as illustrated by this picture!
