Diana or Gerald: We are looking for anyone living at the Home around 1941 thru 1943 The only names I can remember are Adele Powell and Marvin Powell and Faith Brenaman? and there was a girl named Ruth but don't remember her last name. We are Barbara and Delores (Dodie) Ballinger. We have some pictures of Irene Armstrong after she left the Home and went to Washington DC. We have some pictures of the grounds but none of the buildings....Would like to hear from anyone who lived there.

Gerry... I don't remember any of those names or any red heads, but as you say the memory is getting pretty fuzzy. It has be many years since we were there. Marvin had a sister there also, her name was Adele, after she left the home she worked for Walt Disney Studios as an artist. She was very good at that. If you wold send me your email address I will try to send you the pictures I have. they are of my sister and me and our mother. and another one is of me and Adele, Ruth and another girl that I can't remember her name off hand. My email address is babalain2@yahoo.com
