Sentimental Sunday: Fearless Female Addilee Shelton Harris' 83rd Birthday, 1973

Yesterday, March 4, was the birthday of my maternal great-grandmother, Addilee Tennessee Shelton Wolfe Odom Harris.  She was born in 1890, in Sardis, Winn Parish, Louisiana, and died in Alexandria, Rapides Parish, Louisiana, on August 22, 1977,  at the age of 87.  This photograph was taken when she was living with/near her son Lloyd L. Wolfe at Crystal Lakes Estates near Lake Livingston, Texas, where she lived at least 1973-1974.  This newspaper clipping is in an album owned by my first cousin twice removed Shirley Thompson, which I got to see at a Shelton family reunion in June 2016.
