    It is with profound sadness we share with you the passing of homestead descendant Edna Reber Day. Edna will always be remembered for her ever-present smile and devotion to her husband Bob and children, Terry Day and Sue Day-Perroots . Personally, I will remember Edna as one of the kindest, happiest people I have known. I was fortunate to have grown up next door to the Day family. Arthurdale gained a special angel today.

They are mementos from the Army-Navy Production award ceremony held at Arthurdale on May 18, 1945  to celebrate the war effort at home. Army-Navy “E” Awards were given out read more The post Artifact Spotlight – WWII Army-Navy Production “E” Award Booklet appeared first on Arthurdale Heritage, Inc. Continue Reading »
