Friday's Faces From the Past: Fearless Females Betty, Gerrie, and Elizabeth, December 1953

This photo is from my parents' trip to Chicago in December 1953, after they got engaged, so that my mother could meet my dad's family.  My paternal grandmother Elizabeth Florence Massmann Pape (1902-2000) is at the far right, and my mother Geraldine Margaret Guokas Pape is sitting next to her.  On the other side of my mom is my paternal aunt, Elizabeth "Betty" Marie Pape Streff.  One of her two oldest daughters, either Rosemary or Marianne, is leaning against her, and the other daughter is partially obscured on the far left of the picture.  My grandparents' dog Lucky is in the lower right corner.
